based technologies is that there are multiple implementations; as a user, you're free to
pick and choose the one that suits you best. Eclipse Gemini is an Eclipse project with a
mission similar to Apache Aries; it provides independently consumable components
that implement various sections of the enterprise OSG i specification. Gemini provides

The primary consumer of the Gemini components is the Eclipse Virgo application
server. Virgo is based on an initial donation from SpringSource of the Spring dm
Server. Because of its rich Spring support (it even packages Spring 3), Virgo will
