Hi Christian,

Thanks for all of the replies :-)

The clean separation is certainly what I expected, but best to make
sure before leaping in. I really thank you folks as you have saved ORMF
(me in particular) quite a bit of work in wiring the base server
infrastructure and remoting. I will certainly look forward to buying
the Riena team a beer at the next EclipseCon or the Summit if we can
make it this autumn.

I actually think that we will be seeing more and more projects using
OSGi servers with remoting capability. I would really encourage the
Riena team to package and "market" this as a separate "product", i.e. a
feature on the update site or packaged zip. The space is waiting to be

Btw, I am curious as to why you chose Hessian. I am quite content with
the choice, just wondering.

All the best,
