      <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.

          The Avalon Framework formalizes the contracts and patterns used in the 
          other Avalon projects. It is derived from modern software engineering
          techniques and aims to provide a solid basis on which to build server
          products.

          What that means is that we define the central interface Component.  We
  	also define the relationship (contract) a component has with peers,
  	ancestors and children. This documentation introduces you to those
  	patterns, interfaces, and relationships.
        </para>
        <para>
          The Avalon Framework raises the abstraction level from Object-Oriented
  	Programming concept one notch to the Component-Oriented Programming
  	model.  This enables programmers to concern themselves with assemblies
  	of classes, rather than the classes themselves--thus reducing the
  	number of things the programmer must keep in mind, and speeding up
  	application development.
        </para>
        <para>
          The Avalon Framework is already used in
  	<ulink uri="http://xml.apache.org/cocoon">Cocoon</ulink>, an XML
  	publishing framework.  The Avalon Framework is also used in
  	<ulink uri="http://jakarta.apache.org/james">Apache JAMES</ulink>, a
  	Java(tm) Mail Server.  Another project that is built on Avalon Framework
  	is <ulink uri="http://www.jesktop.org">Jestkop</ulink>, a cross-platform
  	replacement for your ordinary desktop.  If you are evaluating Avalon
  	and want the proof that it's claims are valid check them out.
