  2. So I'm curious.. outside of the Avalon project, who uses these components and for what? Many other servers provide similar services, scheduling, parsing and so forth. These look nice as far as things go, but I am curious where people are taking advantage of these components?

    Would they make sense to be dropped into pico/nanocontainer? In a web server environment? In an app server environment?

  3. Avalon components[ Go to top ]

    I'm not a user, but I've looked at Avalon. It's a generic server framework with some useful components. I know that Cocoon and James (apache projects) use this framework. If you want more info, I recommend you post a message on the mailing list, it's pretty active.
