Gemini Blueprint Service
– this is a big deal! Those of you who have been following developments in the OSGi world will know that since we started the Spring Dynamic Modules project
almost 4 years ago (then called Spring OSGi) it has grown into a very popular foundation for enterprise application development on the OSGi Service Platform. Through the OSGi Alliance Enterprise Expert Group, we worked to create a standard based on the Spring Dynamic Modules programming model, and this was released as part of the OSGi R4.2 Compendium Specification as the "Blueprint Service". Spring Dynamic Modules v2 is the Reference Implementation for the Blueprint Service specification. We're still working through the details, but the Spring Dynamic Modules v2 codebase will be moving to Eclipse.org as the Gemini Blueprint Service project, where it will continue to be developed alongside the other enterprise projects and will track the evolution of the Blueprint Specification in future OSGi Alliance updates.
