The properties of bosonic self-gravitating configurations is an interesting research field in Cosmology nowadays. In particular, the condensation process under the influence of gravity remains an open question, even though different approaches have already been considered. Here, we give a short introduction to the study of self-gravitating bosons in the cosmological context and in the case of an isolated object in the Newtonian regime.
