Discussion about Java and MS Singularity


I've started a discussion about how MS Singularity can be achived with a Java centric OS on Java Lobby. I've only just discovered JNode, so I'm not up to speed, but I thought some of you might be able to contribute useful comments.

If you're interested the discussion is at http://www.javalobby.org/java/forums/t53623.html



Using OSGi as deployment model

I have looked at JNode (even ran it on my PC) and I am very excited about the project. It seems like a daunting task, but the progress you have made is substantial.

As an OSGi evangelist, I wonder if you could start using the OSGi Framework, which is a standardized modularization and deployment framework, as your deployment model. JNode and OSGi look like a perfect match. OSGi is already used as the foundation for Eclipse and is now adopted by Apache as well. There are already many companies supporting this standard. It provides a very clean model to install, update, uninstall applications as well as a collaborative model to allow apps to play together. It also provides a foundation for features that you find in a MVM, except for the full isolation (which is very expensive).



I have a Mini-Itx computer based on a VIA EPIA 800 motherboard with VIA C3/EDEN EBGA processor.
I've read in the Hardware requirements for the Jnode operating system that it needs a Pentium class processor with Page Size Extension. As I understand from the processor's documentation, it does not support Page Size Extension.
My question is: is it possible for me to modify Jnode to work on my configuration?

would you be so kind to switch to a webstats-provider that doesn't sporadically pop up advertising windows when I enter the site?



Free VMWare Player

I just noticed this new feature in VMWare:

VMware Player gives you greater flexibility in distributing virtual machines.

VMware Player is a free desktop application that lets you run a virtual machine on a Windows or Linux PC. VMware Player provides an intuitive user interface for running preconfigured virtual machines created with VMware Workstation, GSX Server, and ESX Server. On Windows hosts, the player also opens and plays Microsoft Virtual PC and Virtual Server virtual machines and Symantec LiveState Recovery system images. VMware Player makes your VMware virtual machines accessible to colleagues, partners, customers, and clients who do not own VMware products.
