Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Launching the kloud initiative
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2019 10:46:29 GMT

Yes, I'm agree about the "polymorphic" approach, this is really a big
advantage compare to others framework!

Users can using Karaf as dynamic runtime or with Winegrower for the
static approach, according to their environment (on-premise, cloud....).

We have all the features to make the new Karaf awesome :)
