Subject Re: Notes from JavaOne

Aaron,

Do you have any more information on the Ebay announcement the Apache PRC 
has been asked whether we have any details on this? 

The only public "mention" I have found (I didn't attend JavaOne) is on 
page 42 of the "The eBay Matrix" slides from the JavaOne 2006, presented 
by Ian Flint and David Marsland that briefly mentions WebSphere and 
Geronimo.  I was able to download these slides soon after JavaOne 
finished but unfortunately these slides seem to be no longer downloadable.

If you have any more information please copy the prc@ and pmc@ lists.

Regards,

John
