  +          The name started out as 'Jele' as in Java ELEments but then I thought Jelly was
a nicer spelling :-).
  +          The basic idea behind Jelly that Java code is bound on to XML elements.

  +          Also Jelly (in British or Jello in American) can be molded to fit any shape required
which kinda fits
  +          with Jelly's main aim to be a flexible Java and XML based scripting engine that
can do anything.
  +        </dd>
  +        <dd>
  +          There are many different specific frameworks that take an XML document, bind
it to some kind of bean or object
  +          and then evaluate it in some kind of script or process, so Jelly was an attempt
at a generic engine
  +          using ideas from JSP, JSTL, Velocity, Cocoon and Ant.
