I haven't said much in a long time, and once again I'm back promising to do better, and probably failing. However I am back and the main reason I'm back is I have been having a lot of questions recently about blueprint, and some problems people are hitting. Since my responses have mostly been in the privacy of my email program I though I should start sharing. Hence the Blueprint 101 title of this blog post. Rather than go over the basics below is a quick video I was "forced" into doing for the Enterprise OSGi channel on YouTube. I suggest you jump to 12 seconds in after I've gone from the screen and the slides appear.
