I don't actually want to use C++ - I'm just a bit unhappy with the 
"reinventing the wheel" object model in jk2, and I was wondering if
any alternatives have been discussed.

I was looking over the code, and while I still remember some of it :-) I 
can't stop wondering if it's the best choice. It is an improvement over 
jk, at least from a java - OO perspective, and I don't remember any 
other valid option  at that time ( Mozilla XPCOM, glib, C++ and open 
office OO model each had issues ). C++ or COM-style query interface are
a bit more "standard", and it may be nice if jk2 would be able to 
integrate with a wider set of applications ( and using the same object
model helps ).

Right now "integration" is probably the thing I'm most interested in - 
i.e. communication between different applications and components. Jk2 is
of course pretty specialized to web-like applications - however a lot of 
things can interoperate using this http request/response model ( "web 
services" ? ). So I was wondering if jk2 or something similar could be 
used as a connector into apps like mozilla or evolution ( or any other
desktop app ) and allow access to the services and info inside.
