this is something to take up on the -dev lists, not the user lists,
especially [EMAIL PROTECTED]
One problem with any platform is the native code: nobody but you is
going to build or test it. The only JVM currently recommended is the Sun
JVM, so again, you will get to test there. This means you are going to
have to be active testing releases against your target platform.
Otherwise it will languish in the "not really meant to be used in
production" category of things.
The apache releases (which are meant to be source distributions anyway;
the binary artifacts are just an extra), but you will need to work with
the dev team to make sure the native libraries build properly
