The First OSGi Book And Server - From The Year...
The first OSGi book Programming Open Service Gateways with Java Embedded Server(TM) Technology was written in year 2000, the second edition in 2001. The book was written / sponsored by ...Sun Microsystems. At that time there was also a commercial OSGi server available (Sun again): Java Embedded Server (JES) - I almost used JES in an embedded Java project. JES worked really well, but was discontinued. ...a few years before the OSGi hype...[I even found this book on my bookshelf - didn't actually noticed that it is so old...]
So much for the whole idea that Sun was at odds with OSGi and suffering from NIH syndrome :)

Sun was always too early, sometimes with strange marketing (like trying to sell Jini as a solution for ...printer driver distribution). Jini was a perfect "SOA"-framework over ten years ago...
