In the real world, people will actually use a book or a tutorial, and no 
longer need anything more than a "it works" static page. These examples 
were developed by Sun and part of the API bundle, and do not resemble in 
any way the current web applications.

I do not plan to continue shipping them in any Tomcat 6.0 binary, 
although they will remain in the source bundle.
