This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
The book and the examples (yes, we do have quite some code examples) are largely independent of the framework implementation as we target the OSGi specification. The examples are set-up to be run with felix but do work just as well with other frameworks.
