- do they need some SAP-jars in the classpath upon compilation time?
- if that is the case, do those need to be stored in ASF CVS?
- if that is the case, is that allowed according to their license?
- if all that is the case and the license only allows binary 
distribution, we can implement mock classes

If all these are incorrect assumptions, pardon my ignorance.

FYI, Sylvain just asked whether mail/activation/jta.jar (Sun) could be 
included in CVS. Apparently, there is something in their license which 
doesn't allow this.

If license issues do not allow these components to be added to ASF CVS, 
we could look and see whether they could be hosted at 
(since yes, they would be a valuable addition to Cocoon).

Other worry: this means adding yet another mega-functional-component to 
Cocoon, and I have have been talking offlist about my worries in this 

We better start using the -apps module then, I guess (and some other 
components might as well migrate there, too).

I would like to see what others think before voting.

Thanks for bringing this up!
