Hi Tom,

This would be an option. Alternatively, NetWeaver_7_1_PlatformConfig could be part of the patch which has to be applied to EclipseLink in addition to the incubator. I'll try this firstly.

Hi Adrian,

   What can we do to make this easier?  Would checking a vrsion of 
NetWeaver_7_1_PlatformConfig into the project-source directory allow you to 
proceed more easily? (With the goal of having NetWeaver promoted by the time our 
next major release ships)

   BTW: Most users will be able to access the behavior through the property by specifying the fully qualified class name. 
  My understanding is that this is only required in order to enable 
NetWeaverPlatform for sessions.xml.  (users can even change the ServerPlatform 
in a pre-login event as a workaround using native API)
