Using OSGi & Equinox Effectively: An interview

The other day I had a great time doing an interview with James Sugrue at DZone about OSGi, Equinox, best practices and our new OSGi and Equinox book.

Working through the questions was pretty interesting.  I had not thought about having been involved in Eclipse for 11 years now!  Time flies I guess. It also gave me a chance to reflect on some of the key topics covered in the OSGi and Equinox book — loose coupling, high cohesion, attention to API, POJO programming, … I think these topics are pretty relevant to many developers. It was also gratifying to see that the book has been in the top 5 of Amazon’s hourly Hot New Java Books report for the past few days at least.
