Filip Defoort posted a message back on the 24-OCT in which he mentioned 
that he has an embedded Merlin kernel running inside a servlet. Also, 
Timothy Bennett has been working on web-engine component (based on 
Jetty) that runs in Merlin and handles deployment of servlets as managed 
components.   Alex Karasulu and I have been working on refactoring the 
embedding processes (or which there are four or five variants already) 
to get that into a very clean, very smart, and very small deployment 
model.  Once the refactoring is done we'll be updating all of the 
embedded scenarios (unit test, command line tool, maven plugins, 
web-app, etc.) to use a single embedding approach.

Also something on the agenda is web-enabling Merlin - so that you 
basically deploy components as you do today, but if if your component 
implements Serlet - then you get 100% servlet support as well.  I.e. 
total seamless web-integration while maintaining a consitent compoent 
and service management architecture.

Question for Filip - any chance you could post a patch or the sources on 
the updated Merlin Servlet demo?

Cheers, Steve.
