Hi Jean-Louis

unfortunately I was a bit deferred in receiving this mail thread here. So sorry for the delay

This JSR was targeting mainly EE 8 and mostly deployment aspects. I think, with enough momentum,
we could try to discuss of add some kind of SPIs to EE 8 through the umbrella JSR.
On the other side, when we get a restful container management API, we could also
use this to plugin with any kind of configuration solution. Of course, my hope is
that we will be able to have a configuration solution in place that is mature and flexible
enough to effectively support these EE scenarios.
Application configuration basically is partially covered by Deltaspike as of now, but I think
more features would be useful. As of now there is no good place to do a standardization
for app config. I will try to revitalize the configuration stream in CDI, so we could at
least end up in some kind of EE8 specification appendix. As of now this seems to be the
maximum we can do on a standardization level. On the other side I think, Apache is a
great chance to further evolve the concepts, so we will have a good chance, that we
can standardize them at a later point.

Fair enough. I am looking forward for any kind of collaboration here
