  +        Avalon Excalibur was created in order to ease development of
  +        new projects.  To that end, Excalibur contains a number of
  +        ready to use components and utilities that handle everything

         </p>
  +      <p>
  +        The components in the Excalibur package have been well tested
  +        and do work reliably.  There is an associated project called
  +        "Scratchpad" that is a staging area for new Components.  When
  +        they have been sufficiently tested, we will include them in
  +        Excalibur.
  +      </p>
  +      <warn>
  +        The scratchpad code is provided for your benefit so that we
  +        can get feedback on whether the package is needed or wanted,
  +        and we can get error reports on it.  The components in
  +        Scratchpad are of varying quality or stability, depending on
  +        where they are in the development cycle.  They are <strong>NOT</strong>
  +        meant for production use.  You have been warned.

      <description>
        The Avalon project is Apache's Java Server Framework. It is
        separated into five sub projects: Framework, Excalibur, LogKit,
        Cornerstone, and Phoenix. Its purpose is to simplify
        server side programming for Java based projects.  It
        formalizes serveral best of breed practices and patterns for
        server side programming.

      <description>
        Avalon Excalibur contains several premade Avalon Components
        and utilities to make your server side programming easier.
        There are several pool implementations, Component management
        implementations, and database management implementations.

        Repair major showstopper in Excalibur Component Manager.  This
        showstopper manifests itself as a NullPointerException with
        ExcaliburComponentSelectors.  Because of the reflective code
        in the ComponentFactory, this was originally missed in the
        Beta 2 release.
