Right on. I just won a Best Buy drawing worth $1000. Either that or I won a shiny new virus by clicking the link. Hmm...what to do. 2012-08-29

2nd Annual OSGi Survey

Filed Under Architecture & Design, Java, OSGi |  

Calling all Java Developers, please take the 2nd Annual OSGi Survey!

Last year, I conducted a survey to gauge industry acceptance, adoption, and understanding of OSGi. I posted a summary of the results on my site with more detail on the APS Burton Group blog. With SpringOne2GX approaching in less than one week, I decided to offer the same survey to get a feel where OSGi has gone over the past year. I contemplated changing a few of the questions to reflect what I thought would be more relevant this year, but decided against it because I really wanted an apples-to-apples comparison. The survey certainly isn’t scientific, but it’ll sure offer some decent (and maybe even interesting) insight to the OSGi market.

The Survey consists of 10 simple questions, and should take only a few minutes of your time. So if you’re involved with development on the Java platform, and can spare a few moments, your time would be greatly appreciated. I plan to stop collecting responses on Monday, October 19th, and hope to share the results in my session at SpringOne2GX next week titled Agile Architecture - Technologies and Patterns, as well as sharing the details in a blog post.

Update: Please note the DZone link that was submitted states the survey will close on Monday, Nov. 20th. That’s incorrect. The survey will close on Monday, October 19th.
