CJRE or MJRE for certain platforms can come preconfigured with an Equinox (OSGI R4 core framework implementation), a set of bundles that implement various optional OSGI services and other infrastructure for running OSGI-based systems. Here, we present a short guide to installing and verifying basic operation of Equinox on JRE.
The j9-equinox*.tgz package comes with a simple OSGI application that demonstrates basic functionality.
After 'webapp' application is running, a host-side GUI can be used to install additional bundles. These bundles were written by Apogee and are used to display the basic functionality, as well as features of OSGI framework.
