Long-term Compatibilty with Fortress

Since Fortress is the only other remaining Avalon container within Jakarta we try to achieve compatibility with Fortress regarding configuration files. The problem is that there is no specification available how the Fortress configuration files look like ... :-(

Testing the cross-container portabilty

YAAFI actually maps the Avalon context depending on the container flavour of the service component. We still need to test this functionality with Fortress services.

Use URLConnection for InputStreamLocator

Using a URLConnection enables downloading the configuration files from a HTTP server therefore allowing to run a set of application distributed over multiple boxes from a single configuration file.
