Subject Re: ClientCommandLine and Daemon - Changing boot approach?
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2007 11:51:57 GMT
Hello Rakesh,

The dependencies which will move out of lib/ are:

ClientCommandLine and Daemon will still reside in geronimo-system and  
they will implement org.apache.geronimo.kernel.util.Main.

The offline deployer already uses the same approach we are suggesting  
to apply to ClientCommandLine and Daemon. And it is not impacted by  
the change.
