I suggest to start with the recent version (7.0.21) or with current HEAD
from subversion.

Have a look at the files* and* in the directory

Yes, the released versions should pass all tests. Current headrevisions
in subversionmight have a few tests failing, which are in the process of
getting fixed, e.g. right now there is an occasionalfailure of the comet
test, but AFAIK no other test fails.

They are the unit test classes and helper classes for them.

JDK1.7 ?

To out current knowledge yes. Be warned though, that Java 1.7.0 (no
patch level) has bugs which can lead to wrong behaviour of Java
programs. See for instance
