This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Thanks to JavaRanch for another great promotion, and a big thank you to the authors for answering the questions with so much detail.
This gave me a chance to find out how bundle update works (never realized it had a second optional location parameter) and one of the authors let me know the maven bundle plugin has the ability to scan spring file (although I think I know why it's not working in our project, we import another spring file ...). I've been using OSGi for some time now, and I'm glad to have found out about these and a couple of other things that I should have known all along :-)
