Subject ADS Configuration in Geronimo
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2005 21:35:58 GMT

FYI, Jeff Genender committed under the Geronimo Directory module an 
example of a XSD[1] to configure ADS.
It's actually quite nice and readable as you can see in the example [2]

Jeff would certainly welcome any feedback.

These Geronimo people also sold me on xbeans[3] (no relation to xmlbeans 
used in the Geronimo code) that they favor on Spring configuration file.

A Spring configuration is normally quite unreadable very quickly, so 
what some people were doing is write their own XML (XSD) and transform 
it via XSL at loading time to feed Spring XML bean factory. This is for 
example what was doing ActiveMQ (at least in < 3.1).

XBeans is apparently doing that except that it avoids you to write the xsl
Apparently XBeans will also have native osgi support.
