I just took a quick look at James. Nice job. I think the Mailet API is an
excellent component model and would work well as an MDB. We would need to
write adapters to make the Mailets conformant with EJB 2.1, but I don't
think that will be very difficult. What we will need to do, however, is
wrapper the calls to the Mailet with transaction and security control that
is consistent with the EJB 2.1 specification. Again, I don't think this
will be a big problem.  Anyway, it looks good to me. I'll be happy to help
integrate James with Geronimo.
