Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog!

I'm Flavia Rainone, a former Core developer at the JBoss AOP project, and I have joined the JBoss Microcontainer core development team on May.

I thought that the best way of kicking off my new blog would be introducing the MC Tools project.

The idea behind the MC tools is to create several tools that will help our users to speed up their development with MC. Given that the MC Tools is a work from the community to the community, everyone is invited to contribute with their own tools.

The first tool that we developed is a meta data converter. This tool basically converts your old -service.xml files to the new jboss-beans.xml format.

Of course, there is lot of space for improvements, but feel free to try it out and let us know what you think of it:

Just build the project with maven and use the resulting jar with a javac -jar to convert your jboss-service.xml files. There is no need to setup your classpath.

Stay tuned, as there is plan for improvements, new modules and documentation!
