There are 2 parts to jsr-88, at least in my thinking

- remote deploy capabilities.  This is useful and I think the design  
is adequate although not optimal.  I don't consider redesigning this a  
high priority but if you have some ideas and some time I'd like to  
know more.  I wouldn't mind keeping jsr-88 compatibility but this is  
not really essential.

- vendor plan model (dconfigBeans).  These are pretty weird and  
useless but we are using them in at least the database portlets to  
generate plans.  Replacing all of our plan stuff with jaxb should let  
us replace this too.  I hope we can get this done for g 3.0 but its  
not currently my top priority.

Unless redesigning the jsr-88 stuff will make reimplementing in gogo a  
lot easier I'd be tempted to concentrate on getting the existing  
server to work with little redesign.
