OSGi and NetBeans IDE Mentioned on java.net
By Geertjan-Oracle on Feb 18, 2009
The cool thing about it is that I was able to use NetBeans IDE as a complete end to end development tool for extending GlassFish, using the same development paradigms as I do when creating NetBeans modules. Only the output was different (a JAR which is an OSGi bundle, instead of an NBM file). Really cool stuff.
Another article on this topic that's really good is Integrating Felix with NetBeans, on the Felix site.
Looking forward to more explorations in this area, Fabrizio has a good article on it too.
