Quo Vadis, Way of Quality ?

Some of you may have noticed my post the other day and may have wondered what is going on. Well in short, the Way of Quality is about to shift it’s attention slightly. I have been in consulting for more than 20 years and in that time I have seen all kinds of projects - different sizes, different technologies, different strategies, different budgets. I have provided architecture consulting, development and project management. …

Introducing Project Blended

With the transition to Jekyll we have decided that the documentation for our project de.woq.osgi.java should become Jekyll driven pages as well. As de.woq.osgi.java is a rather silly name for a project, we have decided to rename it to Blended. The new documentation location is at http://www.wayofquality.de/projects/blended/.

Using a directive for HawtIO

As I have written in an earlier post my recent project work allowed me to spend some time contributing to hawtio. Out of personal interest I have migrated some older code I had to analyze OSGI dependencies to a hawtio plugin. It took me a bit to figure out how to do that living up to the Angular idea of MVC separation. As it turned the contribution ended up in two plugins: …

Using a Camel servlet in an OSGI container

The other day I was working on a use case that involves running Camel inside an OSGi container and for configuration I am using Apache Aries 1.0.0. As i have an OSGi HTTP Service already running in my container and need to support HTTP posts, I figured using the servlet component would make sense. …
