Why GBeans - reinventing the wheel?

                 Key: GERONIMO-2328
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Wish
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: Wish List
            Reporter: Oleg Gusakov

Guys - why spend time reinventing the wheen with GBean container? One of the key values of
Geronimo was stated as "bring the best of open technologies together rather than rewriting
them". And one of the most fundamental features - initialization/configuration container -
writing it from scratch and making all errors once again?

Containers have been around since early days of civilization - pico and nano containers, JBoss'es
MBeans, microcontainer, Spring to name a few 

And the father of them all - plexus: has been around for a decade - simple, reliable, proven.
Why not just take plexus and spend efforts on something really new and exiting?

You use Maven for the build, so you already have some kind of exposure to it. Throw in classwords
- and Geronimo rules! No headaches from half cooked products. And not deviating from the stated
principles :)
