Actually, I should correct my previous statement the Forrest plugin uses 
the http API not the Java client API. No need for the Java API at this

Actually, my comment was misleading, sorry.

The "difficulties" are not with Daisy itself, rather with the fact that 
we need(e) to maintain the existing directory structures of the 
documents and the Daisy nav system didn't work in the same way as the 
old nav system.

With the 2.2 docs there is no legacy structure to maintain so it will be 
much easier.
