  • Did he just re-invent OSGi?

    He didn't mention OSGi in this talk. Based on the presentation his proposal seems to be the exact thing OSGi tries to resolve.

    This seems to provide metadata that can be used to enforce modularity and detect architectural violations, not an implementation of a module system.

    Not at all. The idea is to create a (tweakable) out of the box module convention that can be inspected and verified via an API preferably via tests. That module model can then be used through a Spring Boot testing extension to only bootstrap parts of the application in integration tests.

    So while there are certain goals shared with OSGi, most OSGi features or implementation ideas are not relevant here: no classloader isolation (to avoid the additional technical complexity and that kind of isolation not being necessary for the cases assumed here), no dynamic services, no hot reloading of artifacts, no required explicit description of exposed packages via a text file (but rather a convention of defaults plus annotations to tweak those).
