This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Dear Kirk Knoernschild,
Congratulation on your new book, I hope that this book will give me what I am looking for a long time. I am new to OSGi and Groovy, is your book good enough for total newbie or do I have to go through some basic tutorials on those technologies first, in order to understand you book?
The book is exclusively designed for those with zero knowledge of OSGi. It focuses on designing modular software even if you aren't familiar with OSGi. Then, when you decide to use OSGi or Java 8 modules, you'll have the design knowledge to take advantage of modularity in the context of those module systems.
