My statement was more that the EJBContainer API was a very successful. We have to remember what the market looked like before it. Even Arquillian got it's launch in part from Embedded containers. I still present it and have people come say "wow" after the talk.

I would definitely agree that it doesn't go far enough, which I'll take as the heart of what you meant. I've definitely hear that feedback as well. "It's great but I need more."
