Subject Re: Framework using Merlin
Date Thu, 08 Apr 2004 16:30:29 GMT
Thanks for your reply,

But currently is there an equavalent for ECM in merlin? which I can use to
the problem is I cannot expose the framework as it is confidential
(company).

Currently I am using a wrapper class which uses ECM to lookup for the
component and returns the component to the clients who use the framework. I
need to change that class to start using Merlin. Also I have used interfaces
lie ThreadSafe which I don't find equvalents in Merlin. Looks to me like
there is lot of work, but is it possible for you to give me a class which
has main() method which uses some component manager to load a component by
Role.

I also find that the Selector, Role concepts are not found in Merlin.

How are the components identified? (Artifact??) I am not sure. Sorry but the
documentation takes me no where.

Thanks
