Subject JBoss Exhibit "D" : similarity between org.apache.geronimo.common.Invocation and org.jboss.invocation.Invocation
Date Thu, 13 Nov 2003 12:21:03 GMT
Claim : both files contain "AsIs", "Transient" and "Marhsalled", which 
are believed to be JBoss-specific payloads, and thus could only be 
there via copying. Further, the Invocation file is central to the JBoss 
architecture, and thus copying could have great impact throughout 

(I forgot this - the JBoss lawyer's letter just calls it out in text, 
not as a specific exhibit)

Comment : The last part, about architectural similarity, is a 
non-issue, I believe.  You can't copyright the idea, just the 
expression of the idea.
