The open source Sigil project was launched on the Paremus Community Site and has now been successfully donated and migrated to a sub-project of Apache Felix. Sigil is available under the Apache License v2 and and offers OSGi Development tooling with unified IDE (Eclipse) and Server Side build (Ant/Ivy).
The impetus for Sigil came from our own and customer experiences of developing OSGi-based applications. We are using Sigil to develop and build the Paremus Service Fabric, and wanted to encourage the uptake of OSGi by making it available to the wider community as an open source project.
