Yep ... Apache JServ was the first open source project I got involved in,
way back when ... even though it's not Friday, it was a sorta interesting

I was in need of a cheap way to run webapps, and was pretty frustrated
that Apache JServ had been sitting at Version 0.9 for over a year, but
had never shipped a 1.0 release.  When talking about this with my son, he
said "Dad, it's Java, it's open source, why don't you help them finish
it?"  So, I did.

Indeed, buried in the Apache JServ CVS repository is a set of code for
what was going to be the next generation Apache JServ (until the Tomcat
contribution to Apache happened).  If you went back and looked, you'd see
an architecture essentially that became Catalina, the servlet container
architecture of Tomcat 4.x and 5.x.
