Über den Autor
Paul Bakker is a software architect for Luminis Technologies. His current focus is on building modular enterprise applications and the cloud. He believes that modularity and the cloud are the two main points we have to deal with to bring technology to a next level, and is working on making this possible for main stream software development. Today he is working on educational software focussed on personalised learning for high school students in the Netherlands. He is also responsible for pushing technology forward. Luminis strongly believes in open source and all the technology development they are doing happens in the open source community. Paul is an active contributor on projects such as Amdatu, Apache ACE, JBoss Forge and BndTools. He has a background as trainer on Java related technology and is a regular speaker on conferences.
If you’re an experienced Java developer in the enterprise, this practical, hands-on book shows you how to use OSGi to design, develop, and deploy modular cloud applications. You’ll quickly learn how to use OSGi, through concise code examples and a set of best practices derived from the authors’ experiences with real-world projects.
Through the course of this book, you’ll learn to develop modern web applications with tools and techniques such as RESTful Web Services, NoSQL, provisioning, elasticity, Auto Scaling, hotfixes, and automatic failover. Code samples are available from GitHub.
