The OSGi technology is a set of specifications that define a dynamic component system for Java. OSGi reduces complexity by providing a modular architecture for today's large-scale distributed systems as well as small, embedded applications. Building systems from in-house and off-the-shelf modules significantly reduces complexity and thus development and maintenance expenses. The OSGi programming model realizes the promise of component-based systems (see OSGi).

Adichatz is OSGi compliant in order to wrap much of the complexity of development in convenient modules. For example:

  • org.adichatz.jpa provides an implementation (databinding service, data cache…) which manages data from JPA environment inside adichatz framework (This is done once and for all).

  • This screencast shows how to create your own plugin and incorporate it into the IDE for use by other developers.

Modularity provides real benefits on easiness of development and organization of work.
