This project uses the BSD license. I think this can be a good candidate
for integration with Cocoon. Because of the BSD license, We can be able to
include the code and distribute the library as part of the cocon releases.

This one is GPL. The integration with Cocoon will be more dificult. Same
case as Hibernate.

OF course this is just from the license POV. I have not experience with
neither of them.
