SCA can be used to link together the heterogeneous modules in a clean, implementa-
tion-independent way. All in all, life looks good for enterprise developers.
Given how easy migration can be, why does OSG i have such a reputation for being
difficult to use? And why isn't it already the de facto platform? One common theme
throughout this chapter has been that you've had control of the source code and
packaging, allowing you to change the modules as necessary. For the libraries that you
use in your applications, this isn't always the case! In chapter 12, you'll learn some
approaches for making use of code that isn't OSG i-aware, and that, for whatever rea-
son, you can't change.
