The OSGi Framework provides a modular runtime environment. An application built on the OSGi Framework is developed in a modular way—in the form of bundles—so the OSGi Framework is comparable to the module system of the NetBeans Platform. An OSGi bundle matches the principle of a NetBeans module. The OSGi Framework has been widely adopted because of its standardization by a consortium of companies. By now, it is accepted as an official dynamic component model for Java through the Java community process as JSR 291.
