Parts of Avalon are server-specific but most of Avalon can be used in the 
client. For instance the LogKit and Framework parts of Avalon can easily be 
used by clients (and I do in many cases). Parts of Excalibur are useful for 
clients (like the command line option parsing) while some is less useful 
(object/thread/jdbc pools are rarely needed by the client). So it really 
depends on which part you refer to. LogKit, Framework and some of Excalibur 
are useful in a client context while other parts are less so.
