The Future of Enterprise Integration: Learn how organizations are re-architecting their integration strategy with data-driven app integration for true digital transformation.

If I had a dollar each time people had a challenge with OSGi deployments ... I could solve the finance crisis in Europe. Okay I am of course exaggerating; but there is a grain of truth in there ;)

So if you are a developer who wants to be productive, and be able to go home on time, and drink beer with your friends, play sports, and generally have fun and be happy ... then read on.

So to understand what FAB is and why it can make your life easier, then I refer you to the following material.

A FAB (Fuse Bundles) is basically a new way of deploying applications into an OSGi container that can make your life a whole lot easier. This technology has been developed by my engineering colleagues atFuseSource and is open sourced at Github, (ASL 2.0 licensed)

Fintan Bolton and his video team have created 2 new excellent introduction videos about FAB.
To go along the videos we have documentation at the  Fuse Fabricwebsite. I encourage you to read the material, as its in the minds of James Strachan, who is a driving force behind FAB.
FAB comes out of the box in the new  Fuse ESB Enterprise product, however as FAB is open source and freely available, you can use it in general purpose containers such as Apache ServiceMix or Apache Karaf. 

At github there is a number of  examples with full source code, that is also provided out of the box with the  Fuse ESB Enterprise product.
