Part I. Introduction

This document is the reference guide for Spring Dynamic Modules. It explains the relationship between Spring Dynamic Modules and the OSGi 4.2 Blueprint specification, defines Spring Dynamic Modules concepts and semantics, the syntax for the OSGi Service Platform based namespaces, the Dynamic Modules extender bundle and the OSGi manifest header entries defined by Dynamic Modules.

For an introduction to OSGi or Spring, or Spring DM examples, please refer to Chapter 3, Getting Started - this documentation refers only to Spring DM and assumes the user is familiar with OSGi and Spring concepts.

Note: OSGi is a trademark of the OSGi Alliance. Project name is pending final approval from the Alliance.
