The XML configuration can be either simple by using defined XML tags representing common data types and a standard library for reading these types, or it can be more expressive allowing customized and verifiable XML through the use of XML Namespaces and XML Schemas.
The JNDI use can be simple and easy to use or be more powerful through the use of standard JNDI extensibility mechanisms. The simple cases involve the use of the defualt JNDI service provider which is an in-memory, flat namespace that a user may not even realize they are using. The JNDI use can also be more powerful by defining other JNDI service providers such as Sun's LDAP service provider or through the use of some of the built-in state and object factories.
The history of PASX is that it started out originally intended to be just an XML version of the Protomatter Application Server, PAS. PASX is now a little bit more though the basic ideas of PAS are still around, and many of the built-in managers such as the JDBC connection pools, work queues, and so forth are really just wrapped versions of PAS services.
Potomac is delivered in .zip or .tgz format and consists of the following open-source Java projects: Protomatter, PASX, Xerces, JDOM, Tomcat, and RUE.
