Subject Re: Patch to Create a 'Local' Management Context (= SystemManager)
Date Sat, 13 Jul 2002 10:15:33 GMT

Fantastic. Just applpied the patch. I made some modificaitons,  namely I 
moved SubContext to being a top level class as I try to avoid inner classes 
if possible. Other than that it works like a charm - thanks! It is a much 
cleaner approach to separating out different layers of management.
