Yes, this is what I realized yesterday after reading the various posts
here and looking into the various tools.  In all reality, I would have
done it that way anyway, when it came down to specific coding.  But I
quickly realized that the various APIs and tools can all easily use
general objects.  We could easily construct everything from simple
servlets to web services to grids.

What a wonderful world!
