Having used jigsaw for the past few months I can say that in fact it does work.
I dont know about security because I have not tested it.  I have used servlets 
extensively with no problems.  Maybe somenone else has used it to its full 
capacity.  I didnt notice any difference between my applet running on Jigsaw 
compared with running on a different server.

Iain
