I'm not involved in Simplestore, anymore. But it's a OR mapping API (JDO 
and stuff). IMHO that's not needed in Cocoon and Co. The Store 
components in Avalon are simple Data stores (NO DBs). There is a Jisp 
(http://www.coyotegulch.com/algorithm/jisp/index.html) based Store in 
Cocoon. I plan to move it to Excalibur-store to have all Cocoon Store 
components in this subproject. That would be less confusing and more 

What do you think?
