Hello Everybody,

I'm new to this list, but have read a lot of the archive. Please add
my vote for splitting it up and making it searchable!

Jigsaw 2.0alpha1 installed perfectly on my Linux redHat 4.2 machine
with JDK 1.1.3 first time and without any problems whatsoever - major
kudos to everyone!

My company's product requires that it answers requests from web
browsers and so it's going to need something in it which talks the
HTTP protocol, The replies will all be auto generated from Java
classes.

It seems that the Architecture of Jigsaw is perfect for this - will
all I have to do is define my own root Resource which I can then take
the requests and generate replies? I should be able to crop off a huge
section of the code base by doing this yes/no?

Has anyone else had experience taking Jigsaw and building into their
system, that would be happy to share experience etc..?

I'm using the latest 2.0 Architecture, It seems that this may quite
easily allow me to support the same features through NNTP as HTTP
(Imagine my HTTP server is serving archives of a news list) That'd be
great, but not a requirement.

If I read the Copyright correctly - I can use this in our commercial
product at no charge and royalty free as long as we include the
COPYRIGHT notice in our release. Can I get confirmation of this?

Everyone's input and help is most greatly appreciated. Hopefully I'll
be able to return the favour with bug reports and fixes as soon as we
get into the guts of it.

I tried so hard to try and make this not sound like the typical newbie
posting to a mailing list, but alas I have failed, please take pity...

Alex.
