Back three years ago, when Spring was injected into ADS, I think this 
was just because it was "SO COOL !!!"

Ok, I know I'm a little bit old fashionned, but this saved my life more 
than once :) When you think we had AOP into the server ... ;)

Now, what is bothering me the more is different :
- how to ease the Studio team work when dealing with the conf
- how to stabilize the configuration to avoid rewritting the doco every 
- and more important : how to help users dealing with configuration !

I think that point #3 goes well with point #1. When you are a beginner, 
a good GUI helps.

Thanks Stefan !
