Subject Re: Are the specs ready to go up for a release vote?
Date Mon, 12 Apr 2010 18:46:10 GMT
Have the specs jars been tested in both a non osgi environment and an osgi
environment ?
Also, i'd like to have the scripting api and rest api osgi-fied the same
way.  We'd need them in servicemix, and given you have rewritten the specs
to support osgi, i don't see the need to maintain the servicemix ones
Also, I think there is an unresolved JIRA issue (GERONIMO-3960) about the
imported packages (they should not import their own packages).
