  • Modular Java: Dynamic Modularity

    by Alex Blewitt on  Nov 12, 2009 2

    Modularity is an important aspect of large Java systems. Build scripts and projects are often split up into modules in order to improve the build, but this is rarely taken into account at runtime. This third part of the Modular Java series discusses dynamic modularity, how a bundle's classes are resolved, how they can come and go, and how they can communicate with each other.

    Modularity is an important aspect of large Java systems. Build scripts and projects are often split up into modules in order to improve the build, but this is rarely taken into account at runtime. This second part of the Modular Java series discusses static modularity, the creation of bundles, how to install them into an OSGi engine and how to set up (versioned) dependencies between bundles.

  • Modular Java: What Is It?

    by Alex Blewitt on  Sep 23, 2009 4

    Over the last few years, modularity for Java has been an active discussion topic. From the (now defunct) JSR 277 to the recognition of JSR 291 and the ongoing JSR 294, modularity is seen as a necessary step in Java's evolution. Even future JVM-based languages like Scala are considering modularity. So, what does modularity mean, and why should you care?
