At FOSS4G, I was introduced to GeoMajas http://www.geomajas.org/
This project provides similar functionality to MapFish, and before 
moving into MapFish into incubation, I'd be interested to hear a 
discussion about the similarities and differences between the two 
projects. In particular, I'd be interested to hear whether there are 
opportunities to share libraries between projects. (We gain more by 
focusing our developers on one project rather than splitting between many).
