Two weeks ago I announced the new project - the LumberJaczk. There I described it as:
An open-source technology that enables better ways to get and use information on the Web. It let people run and create light-weight on-top-of-Web applications and share them with others. Hacking out your own “best flights search”, “personal investments monitor” will be fun to do.
Since yesterdays late night, the LumberJaczk has its official Web running public at:
Besides the “obligatory” project information the site features few use-cases and screencasts showing the LumberJaczk in action. To keep you informed of what’s going on next subscribe to the project news RSS feed, or join/browse the project mailing list. I’m looking forward to hearing from you guys :)

Hacking out such use-cases like “best flights search”, “personal investments monitor” will be fun to create. At least for me it definitely is :) All based on Firefox browser and it’s Mozilla guts. BTW, the project name: LumberJaczk.
So where are we now?
The system has already been functional and ready to use in alpha version for some time. What keeps me busy right now, more than I expected, is preparation of all sorts of presentational stuff to communicate the project to public clearly and concisely. Presentations, screen-casts, docs are ready and the web page is in progress. My estimations are the first come-out of the Web is to happen the next Mon, May 21 at http://lumberjaczk.org. So check back, subscribe or whatever… I’m looking forward to hearing some feedback once it’s out. After that another big thing is to make a code due-diligence so the code release can follow soon.
Just an information: Peter Szinek, a friend of mine is about to release the Mozilla DOM W3C Connector he implemented. It allows you to access the Mozilla DOM as W3C DOM from within Java when embedding Mozilla. This is fundamental if you want to use standard XML tools and libraries to operate directly on Mozilla DOM, e.g. XML, XSLT, XPath, XQuery. Read more in his original post.
We’ve been using it for few months and it proved to be stable. The bad guy seems to be sometimes JavaXPCOM ;)
