Subject [Configuration] Suppose EMF is Used...
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 04:32:55 GMT
Hey Guys,

One thing that needs to be voted on is whether it is acceptable for components to receive
configuration data from a general context object.  WIth a EMF based approach the server would
first load server.xml, instantiating all the Beans modeled in apacheds-xbean-spring.xsd. 
If you follow the tutorial / trace I sent out earlier, you'll see how there are generated.
 As EMF loads server.xml it creates and binds server.xml to instances of these classes.  These
instances would then have to be made available to other components via a server context object.
 So the server startup process would be something like this:

- Load server.xml
- Get root configuration object from EMF Resource 
  (Metaphor for server.xml)
  and place it on the server context
- Create all other server components, providing them with a reference 
  to the server context

So the question is "Is this acceptable?".  

- Ole
