OSGi in Action is a comprehensive guide to OSGi with two primary goals. First, it provides a clear introduction to OSGi concepts with examples that are relevant both for architects and developers. Then, it explores numerous practical scenarios and techniques, answering questions like: How much of OSGi do you actually need? How do you embed OSGi inside other containers? What are the best practices for moving legacy systems to OSGi?

.What Readers Are Saying About Modular Java
Craig Walls does an awesome job in this book covering this very important topic. Whether you are developing an enterprise application or an application to run on your cell phone, modularization is something you have to master, and I can’t think of a better resource than this book you’re holding in your hands. Dr. Venkat Subramaniam Jolt award–winning author and founder of Agile Developer, Inc. Well-written and interesting. I found the “hands-on” style engaging.
The theory of automorphic functions in one complex variable was created
during the second half of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth
centuries. Important contributions are due to such illustrious mathematicians
as F. Klein, P. Koebe and H. Poincare. Two sources may be
traced: the uniformization theory of algebraic functions, and certain topics
in number theory. Automorphic functions with respect to groups with
compact quotient space on the one hand and elliptic modular functions on
the other are examples of these two aspects.
Ebook The New Origami contains dozens of original projects that employ cutting-edge techniques, including: modular origami (using interlocking pieces of paper); performance origami (accompanied by a story or explanation); geometrical origami (illustrating principals of geometry); kasaneori or layered paperfolding (using overlapping layers to create "ribbons" of color); puzzle origami (featuring interchangeable parts that create a brain-teasing effect); practical origami (making useable objects like envelopes, frames, and wallets); multiple symmetry (sinking, pleating, and folding to create ...
Concerning the motives for consuming luxury brands, it has to be stated that the notion of ―buying to impress
others‖, still more or less serves as a strategic principle for the marketing management of luxury brands (Berry
1994; Dittmar 1994; Corneo and Jeanne 1997; Vigneron and Johnson 1999, 2004; O‘Cass and Frost 2002).
According to the theory of impression management, consumers are highly affected by the internal drive to create a
favorable social image from the outcome of their purchase behavior (Eagly and Chaiken 1993; Mandrik 1996;
One of the keys to understanding Cisco is the OSI model. The OSI model permits
people to understand how internetwork works and it serves as a guideline or framework
for creating and implementing network standards, devices, and internetworking schemes.
Some of the advantages of the OSI model include:
• It allows for the breaking down of complex operation into simple elements;
• Enables engineers to specialize the design and development of modular elements;
• It provides standards for plug and play and multivendor integration....
Offers hierarchy—each layer has
• Modular topology—building blocks
• Easy to grow, understand, and
• Creates small fault domains—clear
demarcations and isolation
• Promotes load balancing and
• Promotes deterministic traffic patterns
• Incorporates balance of both Layer 2 and
Layer 3 technology, leveraging the
strength of both
• Can be applied to all campus designs;

In this chapter, you will learn how to manage Linux in advanced installation and configuration
scenarios. The installation topics cover creating automated installation scripts and managing
kernel modules. You will learn how to implement a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks
(RAID), as well as an array of disks for the Logical Volume Manager (LVM), and master the intricate
details of the automated Kickstart installation process. Finally, you’ll get a basic sense of how you
can modularize the kernel to your advantage....
This is a practical and solution-based book designed to help you to quickly discover and learn about specific aspects of Drupal performance that you are interested in. In each chapter, Drupal-based modular performance tips and solutions are investigated and explained in detail. book is written for Drupal beginners, developers, designers, and webmasters who utilize the Drupal content management system to create robust websites.
In this chapter, you will learn how to create and implement policies for managing disk
usage—by user or by group. Next, you will learn how to upgrade, configure, compile, and
install your own custom kernels. You will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of
monolithic and modular kernels. You have three different ways to customize and optimize your
kernel configuration for size and functionality. You will also learn the recommended techniques
for configuring and installing the kernel.
It was during the very hot summer of 2003 that I first heard of Richard S. Hall. During
a coffee break, a colleague from Deutsche Telekom told me that the local university
had a teacher who was very much into OSGi. This teacher was the author of Oscar, one
of the first open source OSGi frameworks. In 2003, wholeheartedly adopting OSGi was
rare, so I was intrigued. Also around that time, Eclipse was investigating moving to a
new module system, and I was asked to participate as an OSGi expert. I thought Richard
could be valuable for this, so I asked him to join the Equinox...
The “Ericsson GSM System” is Ericsson’s implementation of the
Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM),
encompassing GSM 900, GSM 1800, and also a GSM 1900
standard for the North American market.
These systems are built around Ericsson´s AXE switching system
technology. AXE’s system modularity standard allows functions to
be added, deleted, or modified without disturbing the functionality
in the rest of the system. Thus creating an environment where
Ericsson’s GSM system can profit fully from future AXE
The UniPatch® modular patching system with universal chassis allows you to combine data, audio, and video
patching modules in a single two-rack-unit modular panel. Order a mix of jack and backplane modules to
create a totally custom patching system, or order a preconfigured panel filled with bantam audio jacks or
RS-422 data jacks. You can start with only a few modules and add or change modules as needed. The
universal chassis with mix-and-match jack and backplane modules provides the ultimate in flexibility....
ADC modular solutions supply everything you need to
build and operate a GSM network and provide services.
You can create complete networks including the radio
access nodes and the switching core network. An ADC
network solution also includes built-in databases, service
platforms, and management nodes.
There exists a “communication gap” between the
developers of security technology and developers
of networks. Network design is a well‐developed
process that is based on the Open Systems
Interface (OSI) model. The OSI model has several
advantages when designing networks. It offers
modularity, flexibility, ease‐of‐use, and
standardization of protocols.
Renewable energy technologies—including solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, and
hydropower—are in many ways attractive to policy makers who must address these market
disruptions and the economic and social strife they can create. Renewable energy
technologies are advantageous because they are immune to price shocks from fuel supply
constraints and cartel pricing. Furthermore, renewable energy resources are much more
environmentally benign than their conventional counterparts, such as coal, nuclear, and
Optimized Storage for Virtualized Environments. When EMC’s IT efficiency efforts began, the majority of online IT
assets resided on high-end EMC Symmetrix storage arrays (tier-1), with the balance on modular EMC CLARiiON
arrays (tier-2). To reduce costs and extend the life of the existing data centers, EMC expanded their tiered
structure. More cost-effective, large-capacity drives within Symmetrix and CLARiiON storage arrays were
introduced over time to create online storage tiers 3 and 4, and tier-5 CLARiiON Disk Library (CDL) capacity was
added for disk-based backups.
This paper presents a general-purpose open source package for recognizing Textual Entailment. The system implements a collection of algorithms, providing a conﬁgurable framework to quickly set up a working environment to experiment with the RTE task. Fast prototyping of new solutions is also allowed by the possibility to extend its modular architecture. We present the tool as a useful resource to approach the Textual Entailment problem, as an instrument for didactic purposes, and as an opportunity to create a collaborative environment to promote research in the ﬁeld. ...
