Message Hi folks,
Yesterday Ed Korthof, Daniel Rall, Jason Robbins and I had a telephone
conference about the future of eyebrowse and it's ability to be placed
in a framework (Joist, Turbine, etc).
The problem at hand was the architecture of eyebrowse's servlets, in
particular that they needed to be changed directly to work under Joist.
Thus making them reliant on Joist forevermore.
Possible solutions to avoid this reliance, yet allow a good way to
extend eyebrowse were given to the problem by most on hand.

Jason Robbins's idea: to create a thin servlet wrapper mechanism that
would be able to broker the creation and destruction of programs.
This was criticised because it would be redoing what Jserv already has
responsibility for.
My idea was along the lines of creating a framework interface for each
servlet of eyebrowse. The framework to be used would implement it and go
from there. The problem with it was it wouldn't work so clearly :(
The idea we are planning to use is Ed Korthof's, he simply wants all the
functionality removed from the servlets and placed into a
.../eyebrowse/core/ directory that the framework can simply call as a
method.
So the plan is to rip all the logic from the servlets and place them
inside a new tree called core, also the servlets will go in
eyebrowse/servlets. Along with other possible (undecided) changes to
code layout.
One last thing to be implemented first is the move from com.quiotix. to
org.tigris.eyebrowse since this is where it is maintained.

If there aren't Nay's, coding shall commence today.

I hope this clears things up,
ms-
