Busy busy busy...

Phew, it's been a busy few days!

We've now come up with an architecture for our system, so I'll be spending the next couple of days implementing and prototyping it.

We've decided against Struts; instead, we'll be implementing a form of 'MVC lite', using a command servlet to control flow. (Yes, yes, I know, reinventing the wheel. It wasn't my decision.) And we'll use a Filter for our authentication. No cookies allowed, so I'll be putting together a taglib to do our URL re-writing for our session tracking.

Our toolkit:

Java SDK 1.4.2
Ant 1.6
Cactus 1.5
Checkstyle 3.3
Eclipse 2.1.2
J2EE JSPs 1.2
J2EE servlets 2.3
Jakarta.commons various
Jakarta.taglib various
jEdit 4.2 pre 8
jUnit 3.8.1
log4j 1.2.8
PMD 1.4
Tomcat 4.1.29

We'll be generating XHTML, and formatting with CSS, naturally. ;-)

Not everything that I'd wanted, but not too bad, either.
