I was, just giving people a reminder...

No. Was kind of thinking ahead to the track description, not just the  
call for papers. Don't think it hurts. So, will leave it...

Sure. 'etc' was easier than typing. ;-) They are certainly more

Updated version...


Apache Geronimo is a lightweight, flexible, component-based server for  
building dynamic application server environments. Geronimo plugins can  
be assembled into a fully compliant Java EE Server. However, it can be  
easily assembled into a server providing a subset of functionality or  
a minimal subset required to meet the requirements of a set of  
applications. In addition to the Apache Geronimo Server, the Geronimo  
project is also comprised of a number of subprojects: Development  
Tools, XBean, Yoko, GShell, JavaMail, Connector/Transaction, etc.

Potential topics for the Geronimo Track include, but are in no way  
limited to:
   * Geronimo architecture,
   * Systems management,
   * Custom server assemblies,
   * Application development and user experiences,
   * OSGi Blueprint,
   * Kernel restructuring,
   * Java EE 6,
   * etc.
