Equinox Resources Monitoring

August 22, 2006

Too much work is done around Eclipse (RCP, Equinox, BIRT, Monkey) that I can't follow all the things which interests me.

However, by browsing the mailing list of the Equinox (Eclipse's OSGi implementation), I discovered a cool new project in the Equinox incubator: Resources Monitoring.

Its mission statement?

To provide a framework for monitoring resources that are contributed by bundles installed on the host machine. The term 'resources' is used to describe something as specific as a single object or something as abstract as an OSGI bundle.

It seems to use JMX to manage the resources and to provide both the server and the client code to manage the resources.

Definitively worth a look...
