for me - wierd name. the jboss stuff is a part of the webstack, which is
something that is going to get done / built anyway, so the project
should be aimed at that and the name should signify that. Also, the
webstack includes other things ( which will be available for testing
later today ), which are not Java related.

How is this going to overlap / co-exist with the rhwas stuff ?

First question on that is - what jvm / jre / jdk is going to be used ?
is it completely open source and are there any distribution /
redistribution issues associated with this ?
