Fortress contains a framework to help you create your own
avalon containers. It boasts asynchronous management of your
component instances, high scalability, easier maintenance of
your code, and easy embedding into various environments like
servlet engines. Fortress replaces the older
Excalibur Component Manager (ECM) container.
Fortress 1.1 has been released and includes a number of bug fixes. See the
download section to get
the latest source and binary distributions.

The Avalon developers are working to provide better consistency

Please subscribe to the users or developers mailing list to receive
the latest updates. See the wiki for more information on

containers came from.
- For general information about the avalon project, you will want to read the
