Who is the target audience for this book. Can intermediate Java programmer pick this book and start building highly modular Java systems?

Thanks for the question, Anil.
Naturally, we'd like to think we cover beginners, intermediates and experts all! But I think we work best for folks who already have a solid understanding of Java. Our application tutorial walks thru the actual doing of development, so it's good for those who are new to OSGi and to the tooling, since we introduce the concepts along the way. We also have a deep dives and a reference section of the book which is more targeted toward the expert or the expertly curious. At the end of the day, we are pragmatists first and theoreticians second, so I think the book will resonate with those who are interested in actually doing OSGi as opposed to those who just wanna think about it.

Until what version of OSGi is covered in this book? I am working on OSGi based project and would be interested in digestive knowledge of 4.2 draft with examples. It would of keen interest to me if it covers blueprint container.

OUr book does not discuss blueprint container. Maybe Jeff can add some pointers regarding that topic. That said, I think you'll find that the concepts in using OSGi are surprisingly portable across different container frameworks. And our book certainly covers a lot of best practice grounds for modularity, etc.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
