Subject RE: Using cornerstone blocks without phoenix?

Yep, it's totally feasible all you need is a little magic
from Merlin :-)

1. Checkout org.apache.avalon-apps/enterprise/tools
2. $ cd <your-directory>/enterprise/tools
2. $ ant dist
3. $ ant export
4. and the following to your project's build file

  <target name="demo">
    <taskdef resource="merlin.properties"/>
    <load target="com.whatever.YourBlock" 
      priority="DEBUG" disposal="TRUE" verbose="TRUE">
      <fileset dir="${dist}">
         <include name="*.jar"/>

- target is any class that has a corresponding .xinfo file.
- priority value is either INFO, ERROR, WARNING, DEBUG ... i.e. 
  logging level.
- disposal id TRUE simply terminates the run, or FALSE lets it 
  live on as a server
- verbose if TRUE provides debug level info about what the container 
  is doing with your components 
- configuration is an optional attribute you can provide that references
  a configuration file or you can include a default <configuration/>
  statement in your .xinfo file (see package demo for example) 
- you can have multiple fileset declarations - this basically 
  populates the classloader and sets up a registry of available
  services if the target component needs them based on supplied 
  jar files containing block manifest entries
- check package documentation for lots of additional details

Note - the "$ ant export" statement above will put a copy of 
avalon-frameork.jar, logkit.jar and merlin.jar into your Ant lib 
directory.  After that your ready to roll.

Cheers, Steve.
