+          A micro kernel or component container is required to run the server.
           A micro kernel is a peice of code operating as a component container 
           providing services for that component and running the component 
           through a set of life-cycles.  Eve is designed to run on any micro 
-          kernel.  Her subsystems and components are designed as Plain Old Java 
-          Objects (POJOs) that can be wrapped to make them interoperate within 
-          different containers.  Eve currently will work out of the box with 
-          Merlin and PicoContainer.

+          designed as Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs) that can be wrapped to 
+          make them interoperate within different containers.  Eve is slated to 
+          work with both Merlin and PicoContainer, but there are no restrictions
+          to using containers like Loom, Plexus, or Phoenix.

+        
+        <p>
+          Each component within Eve has a public service interface which 
+          declares what that component can do for its clients.  The service
+          interface is kept and packaged separately from any component 
+          implementation.  The separation is achieved by using a different maven
+          project hence build jar for the SPI and the implementations of that
+          service.  An SPI project is often used to contain the service 
+          interface and other interfaces associated with the component.  
+          Providers of the service must implement the interfaces in the SPI.
