See www.iona.com/hyplan/vinoski/col9.pdf for information on the COS Event
Service.  See also: http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/events_tutorial.html

The COS Event Service interfaces are very simple and very general.  In many
ways, I wish that JMS had been modeled after them.  There is nothing that is
inherently distributed about the model.  One of the first implementations of
the specification was a tiny C++ version I did for embedded systems.  And
the COS Event Service does a very nice job of integrating both pull and push
models of interaction.

Désolé, mais moi ne parlez pas français.  Happily those three slides were in
English.  :-)

I don't believe that we need Yet Another event model.  Has the OSGi
considered either a COS Event Service model or, since this is topic based,
in-process JMS, such as Dave Walend's SomniFugi
