Subject: 2nd try: General questions about Jigsaw

I just found out about Jigsaw, and I must say it looks tempting. But it did
raise some questions:

1. Is Jigsaw a "real" webserver, iow can it be used in production
environment? Or is it experimental?

Yes!   ;-)

3. What would be the benefits of using Jigsaw over Apache/Jserv?

IMHO, extreme portability.  Performance (vis-a-vis NES/Jrun) is not

5. How hard/easy is it to make an application server out of Jigsaw?

Can't answer that exact question, but Jigsaw makes an excellent (relatively
"easy") platform for servlet (or ejb) based server application frameworks
roughly comparable to many application servers.
