Subject Re: Not referenced
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2008 06:08:55 GMT
Thanks for your comments. I should have read the wiki more carefully ;o)
I thought that references allowed me to better express my relations (so 
that users of my data structure knew what to put where).
As for your solution with soft references, I will consider it as it is 
closer to what I want ;o).

I have not invested enought time in the event part of the JSR and 
thought that references was the way ;o).
I'll look into it as soon as possible.
