Subject Re: Service and Component Frameworks
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2003 01:10:32 GMT
In the Jetspeed Cornerstone Concepts paper, we have a number of 
Comparison to Other Work boxes for the purpose of comparing it with 
other (unamed) frameworks and pointing out the unique features of 
Cornerstone.  We attempted at a comprehensive comparison with Hivemind, 
Spring and Pico Container and found it too difficult because it requires 
much more than superficial knowledge of those frameworks.  It will be a 
great thing if experts of those frameworks can contribute their views.
