Now that I'm back home from EclipseCon / OSGi DevCon Boston 2013 I wanted to write a little wrap up post on the whole experience. For starters I'd like to thank the organizing committee at the Eclipse Foundation and the OSGi Alliance for all of their hard work to put together the event. Starting from the tutorial day through three days crammed packed with talks the whole experience was wonderful.
On Monday evening the event organizers made a meeting room available for Apache Karaf users to meet up and share use case stories, concerns, and talk about projects we've deployed on Karaf. A couple recurring themes popped up, including: Raspberry Pi support, better P2 integration, and more tutorials on using Eclipse projects on Karaf. To the later I've uploaded a few Eclipse-Apache Karaf project talks to Karaf's articles web page: From Eclipse Tycho to Apache Karaf: the easy way!, and RAP Application in Karaf with Felix and PAX-WEB The required RAP Apache Karaf archive described in the article can be found here. As to Raspberry Pi support there has been some discussion on the mailing lists from users booting Karaf, but there are some edge cases such as service wrappers that need to be ported to the platform.
