Keeping an implementation in line with a moving specification is always
a challenge as it can be easier to change words rather than change
code :)

This is an issue that the folk that are working on the Tuscany
project [0]
are also facing in their work on an SCA-supporting runtime. During
ApacheCon
EU earlier this year, I had a chat with Jim Marino and Jeremy Boynes
about
how STP and Tuscany could share information, technology, expertise or
whatever to allow both of us to move faster in our reactions to the
spec.

We kicked around some ideas, but nothing presented itself as being an
obvious contender - one of the reasons being that we're working from an
EMF model purposed to provision of a UI, whereas they are working from
a POJO model (which was once EMF), purposed to the provision of a
runtime.

I think however that as two open source projects with licenses that are
considered 'friendly', we should invest a little more time in seeing how
would could approach this challenge together. For example, is it
feasible
to construct a model that we could both share, based on EMF, but
generate
code differently?

Anyone got any opinions? :)

cheers
