Winning Strategies for Software Evolution

About the Book

Adopt winning strategies for migrating a large, monolithic, production Java class library to a coherent collection of OSGi modules. Learn how to refactor a Java project, refactor OSGi modules, how to refactor Java packages to improve benefits and rewards from adopting OSGi. Learn how to avoid using an activator class.

Examples are real-world, production-quality Java source code and resources, not invented just for the sake of this book. They are based on the free license and open source CjOS Project. This book highlights a few examples relevant to the discussion; but, you can review the entire project on-line. You can download and use its OSGi modules.
