  +		quickly follow below.</p>
  +
  +		<s2 title="Introducing: phoenix">
  +
  +		<p>Phoenix is what is called a container. It allows you to build any kind of server
application
  +		following avalon patterns and concepts.</p>
  +
  +		<ol>
  +			<li>Download <link href="http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-avalon-phoenix/release/latest/">Phoenix</link>
(the binary version)</li>
  +			<li>Extract the archive. I'll assume you extracted into a directory named $PHOENIX.</li>
  +			<li>Download <link href="http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-avalon-apps/nightly/2002-10-27/">The
Demo applications</link> (demo-x.x-bin.extension)</li>
  +			<li>Extract the archive. I'll assume you extracted into a directory named $DEMOS.</li>
  +			<li>copy the files with an extension of .sar from $DEMOS to $PHOENIX/apps.</li>
  +			<li>change to the $PHOENIX/bin directory.</li>
  +			<li>Run the startup script (run.bat or run.sh depending on your platform)</li>
  +			<li>Hit CTRL+C to shut down phoenix again</li>
  +			<li>Download <link href="http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-avalon-apps/nightly/2002-10-27/">The
Demo application sources</link> (demo-x.x-src.extension)</li>
  +			<li>Extract the archive. Take a look at the sources for the demo apps and play
with them a bit.</li>
  +			<li>Take a look at the build.xml file from the demo application sources. Don't
worry if you don't understand.</li>
  +		</ol>

  +
  +		<s2 title="Introducing: tweety">
  +
  +		<p>If you figured out what happens in the process outlined above and you managed
to modify and
  +		recompile the demo applications and get them running, you might not need to look at this.
If you
  +                found it all rather complex, this is for you :)</p>
  +
  +		<p>Tweety is a very simple toy for playing around with avalon concepts.</p>
  +
  +		<ol>
  +			<li>Download <link href="http://cvs.apache.org/~leosimons/excalibur/tweety/">Tweety</link>
(the beta)</li>
  +			<li>Extract the archive. I'll assume you extracted into a directory named $TWEETY.</li>
  +			<li>read <link href="http://jakarta.apache.org/avalon/excalibur/tweety/getting-started.html">The
Tweety getting started docs</link></li>
  +			<li>Take a look at the <code>$TWEETY/src/java/org/apache/avalon/excalibur/tweety/demos/ChirpWorld.java</code>
file.</li>
  +			<li>Change some stuff, then recompile (tip: you need to have the <code>$TWEETY/avalon-framework.jar</code>
on your classpath)</li>
  +			<li>Create a directory $TWEETY/classes</li>
  +			<li>Put the recompiled sources into that directory</li>
  +			<li>Run tweety again</li>
  +		</ol>
  +
  +		</s2>

  +		<s2 title="The documentation">
  +			<p>Now is the time for you to delve a little deeper. Browse the avalon website.
  +			There's <b>loads</b> of stuff here :)</p>
