This is an issue for the whole of jakarta IMHO. The main jakarta page now
has 23 top level projects listed. Which is probably more than a new user
really needs to deal with. Plus there are 'hidden' projects of great value
in Commons, Avalon, Turbine (and probably others). Plus there is the XML
project to think about. I would also suggest that some of the 23 are
distinctly more widely used than others ( no names ). There is a distinct
danger of overload IMHO.
