A kinder, simpler Java

SLACKERBIT.CH: Welcome to Java hell

But Jesus, this whole XML crap you have to wade through to get Apache Tomcat (or Jakarta, or Catalina, or whatever it is called today) running is just a big pain in the ass. All I want to do is install one JSP and one Servlet, so we can run some tests on it. But I cannot find the documentation on how to do that.

This one I know. There are times when all of Java seems determined to keep you from doing a thing simply. Very difficult to get in and hack around. I will be interested to see this supposed VB-killer (an app which is supposed to simplify Java dev, no link handy, you know how to Google) from Java One this spring.
