Subject Re: CDATA and GBean attributes
Date Wed, 23 Feb 2005 17:13:50 GMT
I don't parse the data at startup.  The data gets parsed by a 
tssConfigEditor and a cssConfigEditor at deployment time.  You would 
know that if you read the code.  Oh, wait...


Regards,
Alan
P.S. Yes, the schema and editors are on openejb-builder, Mr. Jenks!
