Subject OT: Re: [ANN] hivemind has been temporarily taken offline
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2003 11:29:10 GMT
Interesting that HiveMind was a problem, yet jBoss to Geromino is not a 
potential legal problem for Apache Users. What was the diference, that 
they put the code in first, refactored packages and claimed it 
was not jBoss IP? All Howard did was level with ASF, and Geronimo 
(insert appropriate word) claimed orignial IP.  Even enforcement would 
be great.

I hope HiveMind shows up on in the mean time, it is realy, realy 
neat and original advance in developmnet productivity. I was starting to 
use Pico IoC before, then ..
I found this very educational:

Coding to interfaces, Services and beeing able to intercept (AOP like?).
