No and No. Abdera provides a complete APP client and a set of classes
that make it fairly easy to build an APP server.

There is no reference implementation for the APP spec.  Abdera is one of
several implementations available.

For the most part yes.  The Abdera server code is designed to allow
alternative entry points.  AbderaServlet is the default but alternatives
can be implemented and used fairly easily.  All you really need to do is
provide a RequestContext implementation specific to whatever framework
you'd like.

There is no formal relationship.  I had suggested a while back that the
two projects could collaborate on at least an API-level but nothing
materialized.  It could still happen.
