Subject Re: ObjectWeb and Geronimo communication

Just for other geronimo folks who couldn't make the BOF at ApacheCon 
(shame! it was great, as is the conference as a whole!) I'd just like 
to mention that we might wanna look at JORAM as a JMS implementation 
for Geronimo.

Right now JORAM is LGPL so the ASF wouldn't be able to distribute it as 
a part of Geronimo - or to certify it - though there is a chance the 
LGPL could be changed to BSD- Jean-Pierre said he's gonna try change it 
if we're interested.

It'd be nice if someone in the geronimo community could take a look at 
integrating JORAM into Geronimo (I here the JCA connectors are looking 
good) then we could try out Geronimo with a full 1.1 JMS provider. (We 
should do the same with openjms when it reaches 1.1 as well).
