Project Description
Welcome to OSGi.NET, here we’are sharing anything about OSGi for .NET or OSGi.NET, whatever you call it.

OSGi.NET, a dynamic modularization framework, which is a .NET implementation tightly based on OSGi specifications from OSGi Alliance, is designed and developed by Xi’an UI Information Technology, Inc., in China, from 2008.


This project covers two topics,

  1. How to use OSGi.Net in your project. Currently, the samples in the source code are following,
    1. SimpleShell.sln, it shows how to develop shell from scratch, pretty much straight forward.
    2. DockPanelShell.sln, it demostrates how to integrate thrid part library with OSGi.NET, we borrow some code from
  2. How to develop a plugin.

There are also many plugins along with each sample above.

Any feedback or contribute is always welcome, or you can get me by
