No, but after reading your post I checked it.

Looks cool, Java based which seems the in thing, I like it.

But, and not to sound lamerz; the Sun sponsor turned me off.

At this stage in my career and life. I look at these feeble attempts  
by large virus like organizations to say "hey look world, we encourage  
free and open... " like Microsoft making a big deal about donating  
$100K to the Apache Foundation.
