Subject Re: {DISCUSS] Home for Daytrader sample leveraging Aries
Date Tue, 12 Jan 2010 14:39:22 GMT
Hi Joe,

I think it makes sense to have the new daytrader in apache aries.
Just wondering if you want to have it under trunk/samples or have a
separate directory for daytrader so that you could release daytrader
separately like daytrader in Geronimo.   Another advantage of doing
this separately is that people can easily build the samples without
building daytrader which i know sometimes we have trouble to build due
to its complexity.

Also wondering if it is possible to use the daytrader sample as part
of our itest after moving it over to apache aries.
