About

Apache Karaf is a popular OSGi container that provides rich and broad features, and together with Cellar, you can easily manage farms of containers that provide synchronization between the instances of Karaf. In a real production system, users require a farm of containers to implement failover and scalability, as well as the tools required to provision the different members of a cluster. This book will help you understand the architecture, installation, and configuration of a cluster and teach you about different components and features to get the best out of a clustering solution using Apache Karaf Cellar.

Learning Karaf Cellar starts with an introduction to some of the key features of Karaf. After a quick but detailed understanding of OSGi and Karaf, this book takes you through the concept of provisioning clusters and then covers what Cellar is and how to use it.

Features
  • Install and use Cellar as a provisioning clustering solution for Apache Karaf
  • Extend Cellar usage to more than just provisioning by implementing distributed solutions
  • Practical, step-by-step tutorial with real use cases and examples to help you seamlessly manage a cluster of Karaf Instances
