55  * InfoObject is part of the OpenEjbConfiguration object structure that provides
56  * the information about the configuration of OpenEJB and the container system.
57  *
58  * <p>
59  * The OpenEjbConfiguration itself is created by a OpenEjbConfigurationFactory and
60  * is used by the org.openejb.alt.assembler.classic.Assembler to build a running unstance of
61  * OpenEJB.</p>
62  *
63  * The default OpenEjbConfigurationFactory is DomOpenEjbConfigurationFactory, which
64  * creates an OpenEjbConfiguration object based on XML config files located on the
65  * local system.</p>
66  *
67  * <p>
68  * Other OpenEjbConfigurationFactory implementations can be created that might populate
69  * this object using a different approach. Other usefull implementations might be:<br>
70  * <UL>
71  * <LI>Populating the OpenEjbConfiguration from values in a RDBMS.
72  * <LI>Populating the OpenEjbConfiguration from values in a Properties file.
73  * <LI>Retrieving the OpenEjbConfiguration from a ODBMS.
74  * <LI>Creating the OpenEjbConfiguration using a JavaBeans enabled editing tool or wizard.
75  * </UL>
76  *
77  * <p>
78  * If you are interested in creating alternate an OpenEjbConfigurationFactory to do
79  * any of the above techniques or a new approach, email the
80  * <a HREF="mailto:openejb-dev@exolab.org">OpenEJB Developer list</a> with a description
81  * of the new OpenEjbConfigurationFactory implementation.
