Definitely a must.

So what type of examples would be useful?  Here are some of my thoughts:

Topics to cover (split across several tutorials/examples):

  * Lifecycle Basics (what are the lifecycles)
  * Using the configuration API
  * Service Manager Lookups
  * Role Files and Meta-Info (how to configure)
  * Fortress Lifestyles
  * Running Environments: Swing vs Console vs Servlet...

What else?

What type of example applications would be useful?

  * The current Swing "Hello World Translator" app
  * An Excalibur based "Pet Store" app  (web or swing)
  * Some sort of network server (hosts a simple DB or bean server or something)
