Refcardz: Getting Started with Equinox and OSGi

Equinox is a highly modular, dynamic Java runtime environment based on the OSGi framework specifications. This reference card gives you a quick tour of the technology, how it works and how to use it. We touch on modularity basics, key metadata markup and some best-practices for creating modules. We then look at runtime elements of Equinox and OSGi lifecycle, classloading, key APIs and strategies for inter-bundle collaboration (e.g., services and extensions).
