Subject Re: Split JavaSpaces and JINI
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2008 14:23:21 GMT
Good morning, John.

My predilection is to make system architecting suggestions or  
decisions first rather than systems engineering specifications, being  
artfully concrete rather than scientifically.  So, I hope the  
following is sufficient for your request.

Imagine you want to create a Java Linda spaces API.  You want  
JavaSpaces to work and you want to simplify, simplify, simplify - to  
forget the bells and whistles for a bit.  What it takes to do that  
would "belong to JavaSpaces".  This would seemingly require spaces and  
entries and operations on entries required by the architecture.

I suspect Niclas is taking a stab at this now and I am very interested  
in his results.
