        Here is my relatively uninformed take on the CCM. They are
targeting a different market to us; they want to provide an open standard
for middle tier component development, filling the same gap as EJBs.

        Whilst this is something that interests Miguel and I, it is not of
primary importance in the matter at hand of making Bonobo rock as a
desktop platform primarily ( since this is what many of our users seem to
want to expect ) and as a Component Object Model Environment secondarily.

        When the CCM is finalized and there are a few implementations,    
( there is a lot of new stuff, ( the MOF sounds interesting too ) ) then  
we will be in a position to see how to proceed. That is if there is a
market for the CCM vs. EJB which remains to be seen.
        So; of course the CCM interfaces are build on top of CORBA + some
mods, so it would seem that it might be relatively simple to interwork the
two, but then again I have no real clue.

        Many would like to claim that for their standard.

        Thanks for the ref.
