Subject Re: OpenJPA examples need OSGi!
Date Wed, 27 May 2009 17:51:53 GMT

Hi David,
   This discussion also brings up a more generic point.
   As a group we should adhere to the discipline of bringing *any*
dependency upon build/test/runtime *after* discussing it in the appropriate
forum. The process of A stumbling upon B's commit to notice such 'dependency
injection' is inherently non-sustainable.

  Do other members agree that, in future, before we need to any dependency,
we validate/discuss it in the group?
