IP-based, value-added services have great potential to create value for consumers and generate additional revenue streams for service providers. Telcordia's Adaptive Communicating Applications Platform (ACAP) is a system designed to provide a uniform and integrated service development platform for developing and deploying value-added services. The OSGi® Alliance is an industry wide consortium that defined a standard platform that provides lifecycle management services for value-added services. Great synergy exists between ACAP and the OSGi service platform, as ACAP provides support for the service management issues not addressed by OSGi technology, and vice versa. In this paper, we argue for integration of ACAP and the OSGi service platform in order to provide better overall service management. We present a lightweight, cost-effective integration approach.
