Subject Re: Split JavaSpaces and JINI
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 02:56:42 GMT
Thanks, Gregg,

Since JavaSpaces is the core, as I see the architectural features, I  
think that it should stand on its own without dependencies on JINI.   
This should provide a natural set of affinities.  For example, don't  
you think that JavaSpaces is really where entries belong  
semantically?  I assume you do think this.  Perhaps not.
