Great input. I just finished here at Javapolis and I will give my recap
when I get back to the States.

Funny you mention the questions you did...the top 2 questions I had were:

1) OSGI and Geronimo and it's direction.
2) Performance data against other app servers ;-)

I am getting these same questions everywhere I go.  Sounds like we have
our community serving up some requirements.
