Have you ever withdrawn cash from an ATM? Have you ever traded stocks and shares or bought products online? Most Fortune 100 companies use CICS, many of them banks, brokerages and high-street retailers. CICS is another four-letter word that industry swears by.
The new 64-bit multi-threaded JVM Server container in CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V4.2 allows existing as well as new Java applications developed as OSGi bundles using industry standard tools, to be deployed, updated and removed without restarting the runtime environment. Multiple versions of these applications can also execute side-by-side all managed through modern user interfaces.

The Riena framework is the foundation for building multi-tier enterprise client/server applications. As such Riena is broadening the usage of the service oriented architecture of OSGi/Equinox by providing access to local and remote services in a transparent way. Using this uniform programming model, the components of Riena and the business components of the enterprise application can be developed regardless of their target location. Components are later easily placed on client or server depending on the business requirements. The use of OSGi services makes it additionally easy to replace Riena components (=services) with application specific implementations if needed.

The Paremus Service Fabric is where OSGi meets Cloud. OSGi from the ground-up, the Service Fabric, formed from a collection of nodes, offers a model-driven, distributed, dynamic, resilient and scalable Cloud runtime for OSGi, JEE and other Java-based applications.
Middleware agnostic and with no single points of failure, the Service Fabric is a robust, self-healing, self-provisioning, self-scaling platform providing significant application Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reductions.
Virgo Web Server is an OSGi based application server designed to run enterprise Java and Spring-powered OSGi applications. It offers a simple yet comprehensive platform to develop, deploy, and service enterprise OSGi applications.
Virgo Kernel supports the core concepts of Virgo with no web biased, thus enabling other server types to be created. The Kernel can be used stand-alone as a rich OSGi application platform or as a server runtime by deploying suitable bundles on top of the Kernel.
Both Web Server and Kernel are available from http://www.eclipse.org/virgo under the Eclipse Public License.

Basic OSGi bundle life-cycle management is fully supported. Ubicore also includes a more advanced service / user / subscription model where one or more bundles form an Application that realizes a Service which a User can subscribe to. This forms the …
OSGi powers TIBCO ActiveMatrixTM 3.x, the Universal Application Platform portfolio which comprises the core of TIBCO’s SOA and BPM offerings, including: Integration, Enterprise Service Bus, Composite Applications, SOA Governance, SLA Management and Business Processes.
Through the use of OSGi, TIBCO has been able to significantly reduce the memory footprint of the ActiveMatrix platform, to the benefit of applications that run on the ActiveMatrix platform. With over 200 integrated modules that leverage OSGi, the ActiveMatrix platform only loads those resources into memory that are needed to support a particular application which results in a more efficient use of resources, faster performance, increased availability and enhanced extensib…
The OSGi Starter Kit is an easy to use configuration of Equinox, the OSGi framework reference implementation, and the Equinox p2 provisioning platform. Together these enable users to start with OSGi technology and incrementally discover, investigate and experiment with OSGi-based technology from a wide variety of vendors.
Running EZDroid – an implementation of the Apache Felix OSGI framework on Android, or any other Linux-based mobile operating system, creates a more competitive, secure and flexible approach to mobile computing. Instead of running mobile applications directly on top of the Android virtual machine (Dalvik), applications run within the boundaries of the OSGi framework.
