I completely agree with that. And I think, the project needs to be reworked
to avoid using the Message API from shared.
In my opinion, the use of this API makes it harder for the developer to use
the shared-dsml library. Writing DSML Requests/Responses is not very
The Message API is perfect for internal server use but not really for
end-users I think. Even more now, since it's using the Entry class.

Well, as we need to fix some bugs in Shared from time to time, we need to
use the snapshot version. However when we would release a new version of
Studio, a release of Shared would be a prerequisite before releasing Studio

- if we do that, it means we have to release shared more often

When the server and/or the studio need it.

Yes, it would be very overkilling... Since we have this nightly builds
server, I think we can use it as a way to alert us if something goes wrong
with a commit in Shared that affects Studio. Just like it did today.
