Wow, there's a lot that should be checked, i.e.:

I18N (Effortless)
Security (Auth-FW)
Documentation: D,E,F,G,J,T
Error Handling (i.e. <map:handle-errors/>)
IDE Integration (SunBow)
Web Services (WSProxy, HttpProxy)
Direct Database Access (ESQL, etc)
Workflow (The Flowscript)
XML-RPC (This really falls under web services)
Job Scheduling - Scheduler in cron block.

Not sure about EJB or O/R stuff, since I don't mess with it much. It's a 
little hazy by which methods these featuresets are evaluated.
