The WSO2 Carbon platform consists of components performing central functionalities such as security, management, clustering and more. It is the base platform for all the SOA Java products in WSO2 and they are built by adding reusable components to Carbon platform.

Sameera JayaasomaWSO2 Carbon inherits this modularity and dynamism form OSGi- the dynamic modular system for Java. OSGi defines a way to create true modular systems and also it adds dynamism to Java applications. The unit of modularization in OSGi is called a “Bundle” which is more or less a standard Java archive(jar). A bundle running in OSGi can share static classes as well as their instances. These instances are called OSGi services. They provide bundles a way to collaborate at runtime in a loosely coupled manner.

More importantly this revolutionary SOA platform is powered by Apache technologies, mostly Apache Axis2 which is the most popular, open source Web services engine. Carbon not just uses Axis2, but it also enhances the capabilities of Axis2 with the Axis2-OSGi integration. Carbon can be considered as thin layer on top of Axis2 and it acts as a bridge between OSGi and Axis2. Carbon allows Web services reside in OSGi bundles, get deployed in Axis2. Not just services but also other Axis2 extensions such as Axis2 modules, service deployers, transports which reside in OSGi bundles can be deployed in Axis2.
