   (1)  There is currently a JNDI implementation in Tomcat's CVS. It might be better to move
this to Jakarta Commons so we can all work &amp; extend it - there are various features
from Jetty and OpenEjb we'd like to add?
  -<strong>Q: What is Elba?</strong>
  -A: Elba is basically an LGPLed snapshot of JBoss (but not called JBoss to avoid lawsuits).
Its not really intended to be developed or enhanced - its a temporary code repository of increasingly
shrinking code.
  -The idea being for the next (say 1 year) Geronimo by itself isn't gonna be a full J2EE
stack. So rather than suffering a Mozilla-style period of lack of use - Elba is a temporary
LGPL add-on to Geronimo that Jboss code with Geronimo to provide a full J2EE stack. So from
day 1 Geronimo can be used (if so desired) as a full J2EE stack by using the Elba code.
  -Of course users are totally welcome to just use whats in Geronimo and nothing else. Or
they can drop in other existing services if they wish too. So Geronimo is a clean normal Apache
project.  If need be you can drop the Elba stuff into Geronimo and get a full J2EE stack.
  -So the Elba drop of code is totally optional for those who want to migrate from JBoss to
Geronimo from day 1 and keep a full J2EE stack. Though as soon as possible all the Elba stuff
can be scrapped as Geronimo by itself becomes the complete J2EE stack (along with the stuff
it reuses like Tomcat / Axis / mx4j etc).
  -e.g.  we replace the JMS from JBoss with OpenJMS. We replace the transaction manager with
Tyrex etc. Rewrite the connectors to Tomcat/Jetty/Axis and so forth. As time goes on Elba
shrinks away to nothing.
  -So in summary Elba is a Geronimo distribution which includes dead LGPL code that can be
useful to bootstrap Geronimo. I hope it doesn't exist this time next year and its use is totally
