From osgi website, the alliance existed from 1999. I think Osgi usage has pciked up during last few years, what is the reason ?

I guess, that OSGi was become known to a broader audience, after Eclipse was using it since version 3 for there plugin-system. Before it was mainly used by embedded-systems-developers.

Thanks. Wasn't modularity a concern before Eclipse was using it.

Yes, of course it was (and is) a concern. But you asked why OSGi usage has grown in the last years. And I'm thinking that the choice of the Eclipse community to abandon there own plugin-system in favour of an industry standard brought this standard (OSGi) to the consciousness of a broader audience who never heard of it before.

The fact that GlassFish uses it -and it seen as a rock-solid server- may also have contributed to a change of perception and a subsequent increase of interest.

A variety of factors, but certainly Eclipse adoption was a big boost.
