Loom is a micro-kernel designed and implemented on top of the DNA framework. It supports components developed using the Avalon framework. In the future Loom will also support DNA and Pico components.

Loom provides a number of facilities to manage the environment of server applications. Such facilities include log management, classloading, thread management and security. Future releases will conditionally support extra facilities such as central server management, server pools, and other tools aimed at reducing the time to market.

The API defines a standard method of piecing together server components and creating a server.

Getting started with Loom

The general advice to understanding Loom is to read the documentation on this site and try the application while doing so.

For example, start by reading the user's guide, look at the demos, install and play with the binary distribution. To further deepen the knowledge it is a good idea to take part in the community by joining the mail-lists or IRC discussions.
