Finally, someone that says hi to people.

Wow, this thread got a lot of attention. Unfortunatelly I am home and I 
won't go over those messages via a web based interface (that's the only 
way to view them from home). I chast subscribed with this addy instead. 
I will keep our context in my reply and do an overall comment sometime

That's because you had to build Cocoon using JDK1.4 to for some things 
to work, namelly database access.

Unfortunatelly, I have no experience whatsoever with JBoss.

Usually MySQL, but that's mostly because of habit and web administration 
via PHPMyAdmin.

Actually, there's a bundle of JBoss with a version of  Tomcat at No clue about setting those two up together but I know people 
in this list have done so; perhaps someone should do a good thing and 
supply with the documentation for this (item 1 ;-)

On the contrary, I love SVG.

JascWebdraw is good, but if you have a markup/web authoring background 
you are better with a good text editor. I don't know about open source 
projects on the SVG editor area.

Sorry, out of my territory.

Pretty cool. Even has Gant charts. Instalation was a little hard on windows.

Hey, it's a geek fashion ;-)
Seriously now, it's a big task and will require people to through in 
some brains, experience and hours of work. Worst of all, it will require 
us to be serious and eager to do the job.
