Androsgi: bringing the power of OSGi to Android
Nowadays, Android is by far the most popular operating system on a myriad of mobile devices. Although based on the Java programming language, Android does not offer the same benefits as a dynamic software module system such as OSGi. Nevertheless OSGi would have many advantages on mobile environments. Software modularity allows you to only deploy the required pieces of software at runtime. Moreover, many of the enterprise OSGi specifications facilitate the development of distributed applications connecting to the Cloud. In order to exploit these advantages on Android, we present Androsgi, an Eclipse IDE plugin that allows you to easily run OSGi on top of Android. The Androsgi plugin facilitates deploying OSGi bundles, and calling both local and remote OSGi services from within your Android application.
