Subject Re: [jira] Created: (JAMES-688) Replacement of Avalon with something new, modern and perspective technology
Date Mon, 13 Nov 2006 11:42:46 GMT
Hi Miroslav,

The server-dev list is excellent for discussing this, so I refrain
from commenting directly in JIRA.

"replacement" in terms of "removing" - no.
"replacement" in terms of "having alternatives" - yes. there are both
intentions and efforts to use OSGi or Spring.

"new, modern and perspective" - there is no real reason to turn away
from Avalon because it is "old". We also will keep supporting SMTP
protocol, although it is neither "new" nor "modern" ;-)

What is in JDK6 that is similar to Avalon?
BTW, of course we will keep supporting older versions of the JDK, too.
