Thanks. I looked at cornerstone-demo. Here are my first impressions:

 The cornerstone concept is very interesting, especially with its 4 
dimensions of customizations: components, component relationships, 
control flows of components, and persistence of the customizations. It 
seems to me the framework will be much more useful with these additions:
    1) Except of the bootstrap properties file, components (service) 
initialization centralized in 1 place using XML and Digester will make 
the naming much easier to follow and manage.  The services not 
initialized via XML name-value settings can then proprammatically 
registered with empty context as demonstrated. The effort in this area 
is munimum but the benefit is significant. Many apache projects use 
Digester: Struts, Tiles, HiveMind.
    2) Two things will make the framework instantly shine are 
best-of-breed CacheService and  SpoolService besides the full working of 
the 4 dimensions of customization. I saw the tutorial of CacheService in 
developmnet cookbook but missing in the current cvs.

Hope Jun will have time to make cornerstone framework a real cornerstone 
of portal services.

Best Regards
