In D term of 2009, a group of software engineering undergraduate students created a particularly solid product called WPISuite. The original project created a software engineering requirements manager, with a solid but flexible foundation so that additional modules and functionality could be added to the application. WPISuite was built with its own internal module system. This MQP project transformed the WPISuite application into an OSGi-compliant application. This project serves as a guide for future teams who desire to transform a large project into an OSGi application. Existing documentation focuses primarily on building small projects from scratch into the OSGi engine from the start. For a large existing project, the challenges are quite different.
