OSGi In Practice
comment share
I've just started reading OSGi In Practice, by Neil Bartlett. Despite the title, it's not part of the Manning Press series, but instead is free and under a Creative Commons license. Despite the author's claim that it's a working draft, it's better written than a lot of published technical books.

I'm just to Chapter 2, but so far, it's a great introduction. He's given a terrific history of the need for a complete module system in Java, the pitfalls of the hierarchical classloader world and first-found-first used classloading. I'm really excited about this book. I recommend checking it out.
