You should be able to build both; but you need to get core installed first 
to build factory (see

The build.xml should also work (Gump hasn't been complaining lately ;-)

You mean:

I was thinking about trying that.   I was also thinking about stealing 
from simple JNDI in various ways.

What I was working on most recently was trying to get a reasonable test 
framework set up.  It quite likely will need to be refactored; but I think 
that a generic JNDI provider test framework will be a good thing to have, 
beyond helping us better understand and document exactly what capabilities 
are present in the tomcat code.  It might be interesting to see if the 
tests work with Simple JNDI (or vice versa).

I am also not at all convinced that the core - factory split is necessary 
or cleanly done.  I would be +1 to recombining or refactoring.
