What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

This review is about OSGi in action from Richard Hall, Karl Pauls, Stuart McCulloch, and David Savage from Manning Publications.

Facts

  • 11 chapters, 548 pages, $49.99
  • Covers OSGi R4.2

Pros

  • Easy step-by-step learning approach
  • Covers many OSGi pitfalls
  • Use-case study included

Cons

  • Too much material ;-)

Conclusion

I tried once or twice to tackle OSGi on my own, without much success.

I purchased the book in order to remedy the situation and I wasn’t disappointed: it’s a rich mine of information on OSGi and is riddled with practical tricks to address real-life situations.

Unfortunately, despite the authors claims to the contrary, OSGi is a complex technology and I don’t think many organizations are mature enough to implement it. It’s a shame but those who do will certainly benefit from this book.
