A container is just something that contains. Its the damn decorator pattern silly! I think the future is in small containers(like Spring and JBoss's new microcontainer) that only turn on what you need through intelligent introspection.
Andy Oliver has responded to a quote by Howard Lewis Ship on using a container for what it's good at. The core issue, he thinks, is that "container" is a loosely-defined term - and Andy is trying to correct that.

"we scan thousands of blogs to find the ones most worthy of your attention"
How is this rant worthy of anyones attention?
HLS quote has nothing to do with Andy post. The quote comes from a blog entry by HLS on Aug 16, 2004, making the case for dependency injection and lightweight containers.
