My last comment (about finding out whether ADS was suitable) was more about 
the fact that I am a complete newbie to directory services.  I have a sneaky 
feeling that ADS (directory services) will be useful in being able to store, 
lookup and use squillions of diddy java objects - stored and looked-up in a 
manner similar to a registry.  This feels instinctively faster than storing 
them in a RDBMS.

(And having used Eclipse (and liked it) I have recently started using 
Netbeans - cos the JavaEE tutorials use Netbeans.  So it would be useful to 
integrate to Netbeans.)
PS Sorry but getting upset about top-posting/bottom-posting is decidedly 
anally retentive :-)
