ApacheCon NA 2010 Session

Managing an OSGi Framework with Apache Felix Web Console

Initially created to aid in the simple maintenance of the OSGi framework and the application during the early development of Apache Sling, the Web Console soon attracted interest from the OSGi community. Three years later, the Apache Felix Web Console 3.0 has just been released and provides an extensible console for Web based management of an OSGi framework. This talk will introduce the functionality of the core Web Console as well as some of its existing plugins and the extension points of the Web Console where developers might want to hook up to. To round it up a simple Web Console plugin will be developed and deployed.
