|Re: [ecf-dev] iPOPO Compatible Providers|
I'm Thomas Calmant, the lead of the iPOPO project  which aims to be
an implementation of parts of the OSGi specifications in Python.
This is a two-parts project: Pelix, an SOA framework inspired by OSGI,
and iPOPO, an IoC component model inspired by iPOJO.
iPOPO has a home-brewed implementation of Remote Services, using
multicast packets for discovery and services updates, a HTTP servlet
to describe available services, and JSON-RPC as transport.
A corresponding Java implementation exists , it is based on a fork
of the Jabsorb library .
I'm looking forward working with ECF community in order to reuse or
implement ECF and iPOPO bundles in order to have a cleaner way to
provide remote services and to simplify interactions between Java and
As I presented iPOPO to Markus Kuppe and Scott Lewis during the last
ECF Conference Call, an enhancement request  and a wiki page 
have been created to describe the future work.
It would be interesting for iPOPO to be based on a robust
implementation of remote services, and it could be a nice
demonstration of the extensibility of ECF.
