+Welcome to Apache Wookie
+=========================
+Apache Wookie is a Java server application that allows you to upload and deploy 
+widgets for your applications; widgets can not only include all the usual kinds 
+of mini-applications, badges, and gadgets, but also fully-collaborative applications 
+such as chats, quizzes, and games. 
+
+Wookie is based on the W3C Widgets specification, but widgets can also be included 
+that use extended APIs such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial. 
+
+Administrators can upload Widgets packaged according to the W3C Widgets specification,
+and makes these available to applications using a REST API. Applications typically have 
+a plugin that implements this REST API, and enables users to pick widgets from a gallery

+of those available to add to their pages.
+ 
+There is a Connector Framework included in Wookie for many different programming 
+languages that simplifies the process of writing plugins.
+
+Incubation Disclaimer
+=====================
+Apache Wookie is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software 
+Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. 
+
+Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review 
+indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process 
+have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. 
+
+While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or 
+stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully 
+endorsed by the ASF.
+
+Getting Started
+===============
+For a source distribution, please read BUILDING for 
+instructions on building Apache Wookie. 
+
+Apache Wookie is made available in a standalone binary distribution,
+which means that once you download it, you should be able to run wookie
+'out of the box' without having to download and configure any other components
+	* Please read STANDALONE_BUILD_NOTES for this
+	
+Additionally a WAR archive binary distribution is also made available for Wookie. 
+This is designed for users who wish to use/integrate Wookie into their existing server 
+environment - an existing Tomcat instance for example.
+	* Please read WAR_BUILD_NOTES for this
+	
+You may also want to refer to RELEASE_NOTES for list of supported and unsupported 
+features.
+

+Known Issues
+============	
+	* [WOOKIE-152] - There is a known issue when using Ant version 1.8.x to build and run Wookie;

+				     you should instead use version 1.7.1. To check which version of ant you are using,

+				     type ant -version.
+	* [WOOKIE-222] - There is a known issue when using Tomcat 7.* with Wookie. Sometimes when
a widget is actually
+					 loaded, a browser alert box sometimes appears informing the user of a "Session Error".
+					 A workaround for this is to add the following to the WEB-INF/web.xml file
+					 
+					 <init-param>
+						<param-name>crossDomainSessionSecurity</param-name>
+						<param-value>false</param-value>
+					</init-param>
+					 			
+					 This is an issue for Tomcat 7.* only. Previous versions do not appear to have this
issue.
