You may want to hold off on this for a little while.  Currently over in 
Avalon land there is work going on concerning a standard "meta model" 
that will be described using an xinfo resource that has the potential to 
enable component deployment across a number of different containers. 
 Currently James uses Phoenix as its container and describes component 
meta-info in a blockinfo descriptor.  It is expected that Phoenix will 
be enhanced to support a more standard meta info DTD in the near future. 
 In the meantime there is work on-going with two other containers - 
Fortress and Merlin.  The authors of these containers are working 
together to ensure the establishment of a meta-model that completely 
addresses not only the defintions of component services and depenedecies 
along the lines of the blockinfo model, but addition contextn such as 
lifecycle extensions, lifestyle management, and so on.  When this all 
settles down I expect we will see support in Phoenix for the 
Fortress/Merlin meta-model and support for blockinfo declarations inside 

Cheers, Steve.
