Subject Re: Jini Service Container advice...
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2008 11:56:46 GMT

If you are interested in synthesis of OSGi with Jini, check out the  
newton project @ newton.codecauldron.org. Newton "Systems" use Jini  
discovery and leasing mechanisms, and support dynamic proxies. Spring  
"classic" and Spring DM are supported, also Jetty.

Any queries, send them to the newton mail list.

This is an active project, with a series of release planned throughout
