Newton Discovery

I've discovered Newton, and now Newton's downloading on my Apple.

Newton uses OSGi for local components and Jini for remote components, combining them both into a distributed component framework, with some SCA thrown in for good measure to describe how to assemble the components all together.

A good starting point to learn about Newton is The Newton Component Model.

Newton is available under a GPL or commercial license.

Here's a presentation on Newton from the 10th Jini Community Meeting last year.
