Does it matter that we list the tools here, if we don't explain what they are? -- Zoe
If you know enough to know what Jakarta is you will know what the tools do.... But they ought to be linked and detailed. user:sjc
- You may be confusing projects with products, which would be understandable. The summary on my edit  was intended to show that the information source was http://jakarta.apache.org/, and that is also the source for the terminology. It is the Jakarta homepage that distinguishes between the two lists.
- The Apache Software Foundation has a number of projects.
- One of those is the Apache Jakarta Project, which covers a number of products, e.g. Cactus.
- Other Apache projects are single products, e.g. Apache Ant, and some of these are classed by the Jakarta Project as Jakarta-related products.
- My guess is that some Apache projects/products are Jakarta-related because they are written in Java (like Ant or Maven), and others because they are a relevant platform (like the HTTP server). --Zigger 16:09, 2004 May 7 (UTC)
I am writing a degree plan for myself where I will develop a jakarta environment as my capstone project. I hope to keep it purely jakarta and from apache software foundation offerings for simplicity as I have to educate my mentor as I go along, he is a well known social scientist whom I have interested in the Information Society. The degree is for IT in public service.
I am researching the products (and projects) for the degree plan but that does not guarentee accuracy, implementing them will.
I noticed the last updates are more than a year old, hence the above comments, cheers --John van v 17:43, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

- Please rewrite this. The tone is not right. This is probably not politically correct. The Jakarta conference room at Sun Microsystems was named after the capital city of Indonesia.
- Put yourself in the shoes of readers from Indonesia - why belittle them? It just reeks of American arrogance. Then Americans wonder why they aint liked no more outside USA.
- How would you like it something like this is written in Encyclopedias of the world?
- The new 5G Wi-Max technology called Dallas is not named after the city in USA. It is named after Mr Narayan Murthy's favorite dog - who inspired him to fund the new startup company in Bangalore?
- I suppose the editorial team should not be so insensitive.
Please don't shoot the messenger. I'm just cuttin' and pastin' here... -Bouchecl 01:14, 23 June 2006 (UTC)
