Subject Re: OSGi transaction management (RFC-221)
Date Mon, 15 Feb 2016 18:31:55 GMT
Given the positive response I’ve started by creating an API project for the Transaction Control

next. Once enough of it is hanging together I’ll add it to the main build so that snapshots
start appearing in maven.
