Hi Serge,

thanks for this great feedback ;)

We are definitely in line ;)

“critical” I believe to make Karaf appear as a modern “container” solution. It would
actually be great to have a “roadmap” page that summarizes the ideas for the future of
Karaf. I was thinking about doing this for the Unomi website too. In the roadmap of course
Karaf-boot could be referenced and even the tentative code could be referenced, making it
much more visible.

way it will be more visible. Also I need to play with it to understand what you have done
so far.

out there for Karaf boot. Much in the same way that projects like JHipster (https://jhipster.github.io)
do it, it would be fantastic for example if JHipster offered a Karaf alternative to Spring-Boot.
Also, maybe we could find a way to leverage Spring Boot by offering Karaf Features that embed
most of the Spring libraries so that we could then say, instead of using Spring Boot and create
yet-another-monolith, you could instead use Karaf Boot and the Spring features and easily
create a custom distribution that provides any of the features listed here : https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-boot/tree/master/spring-boot-samples

instead of their own custom container, which would make sense for them too since they are
basically (slowly) re-inventing Karaf for their needs.

to do all the work to try to get Pivotal on board once we have something very smooth :)
