2nd Annual OSGi Survey

Last year, I conducted a survey to gauge industry acceptance, adoption, and understanding of OSGi. I posted a summary of the results on my site with more detail on the APS Burton Group blog. With SpringOne2GX approaching in less than one week, I decided to offer the same survey to get a feel where OSGi has gone over the past year. I contemplated changing a few of the questions to reflect what I thought would be more relevant this year, but decided against it because I really wanted an apples-to-apples comparison. The survey certainly isn’t scientific, but it’ll sure offer some decent (and maybe even interesting) insight to the OSGi market.

The Survey consists of 10 simple questions, and should take only a few minutes of your time. So if you’re involved with development on the Java platform, and can spare a few moments, your time would be greatly appreciated. I plan to stop collecting responses on Monday, October 19th, and hope to share the results in my session at SpringOne2GX next week titled Agile Architecture - Technologies and Patterns, as well as sharing the details in a blog post.

for the last survey, the result population is too small to be statistically meaningful.  64 respondents, of whom 80% said they'd develop in OSGi in the next year?  way too high, based on what I see in industry.
