There is a summary of the difference between the different contains on 
the Merlin FAQ.  


In terms of Merlin future direction - immediate work is focussing on 
service distribution (connecting a somponents in one container with 
services resident in another container executing in a different system). 
 Beyond that there will be additions to enable 
ComponentManager/ServiceManager lookup policy customization which will 
enable Merlin to complete handle the semantics implied by the 
ECM/Fortress lookup model.  Beyond that - there is strong interest in 
the delivery of a component packaging model - something more fin grained 
by the Phoenix SAR file - more like container configuration packaged to 
go so that we can start using relatively complex component/service 
assemblies as reusable service modules.

Cheers, Steve.
