Forgive me if this is the wrong place to offer new projects. If so,
kindly point me in the right direction.

I have developed a small project to help unit test
URLConnections. Basically, it provides a loopback URL-handling protocol
that you can use to check to ensure that your code that deals with
network stuff works properly, even under less-than-idea situations.

You can use it to simulate broken HTTP servers, "not found" errors, etc.
that are often inconvenient to set up in other ways (like putting static
files on a web server just for testing).

It is basically a much more flexible and extended version of the ideas
articulated in this JavaWorld article from quite a while ago:

If this seems like the kind of thing that Jakarta-Commons would consider
taking a look at, please contact me outside of the list with further
instructions, and I'll be happy to discuss it in more detail, provide
code, etc.

The project is pretty much ready for a release: it contains some
documentation for use, all code is javadoc'd, there are a complete set
of (working) unit tests, and it uses ant in a relatively standard way to

Thanks for your time,
