Yes that seems to be the same idea (for the wizards). Anyway, I found
the Spring MVC portlet framework too complex (or maybe it is due to
the fact that there is no simple examples).

Graffito provides nice portlets to view/manage the content tree. it is
already integrated with JAAS and the J2 security services. it is also
integrated with an HTML editor (kupu).
We are working on JCR integration and finalizing the current portlets.
We plan also to support other content server (Webdav, ...). I think
Graffito is providing a very simple api.

Later, we plan to add workflow and version management. J2 integration
is almost done. A graffito implementation will be  implemented for the
Jetspeed 2 page manager.

On the top of that, you should see later application like forums, news
management, articles management, ... but all of this is not yet ready
to use in production.
