That's the very thing that resulted in divergent and in-compatible 
implementation approaches.  Avalon Framework alone does not cut it - its 
just a part of the component contract and to build against the contract 
you have to take into consideration more than a bunch of interfaces:

   * javadoc tags
   * lifecycle artifacts (Configuration, Context, Parameters,
     ServiceManager, etc.)
   * delivery strategies
   * lifestyles

Tis is presented under the "Component Model" and related javadoc.

Cheers, Steve.
