AW: [smila-dev] introduction and several questions

Hi Simon,

Welcome and thank you for your interest in SMILA!

It would be great to get your feedback/input on that!

At ESE we presented two SMILA talks this year:
The first one called "Searching eclipse.org with SMILA: An Eat-Your-Own-Dog-Food Experiment " (http://www.eclipsecon.org/summiteurope2009/sessions?id=915) was held by my colleague Ralph Traphöner.
I presented the second talk called "SMILA - The Integration Framework" (http://www.eclipsecon.org/summiteurope2009/sessions?id=876).
Both these Talks have beside abstract also slides attached to them (see the bottom of the respective page), so you can at least get some impression of what we have been talking there.

In case you would like to see the demos too, here is a link to the recording of our session at the EclipseCon 2009: http://live.eclipse.org/node/734


> We will keep you posted with our development work on SMILA.
Please do so.


If you need any further information just let me know.

Cheers
Igor
