After I had my first release of Bunkai up and running, I was contact by Lars Trieloff , of the Apache Sling project. We discussed whether Bunkai could be used as a resource editor for Sling.
I've mentioned Sling a bit in a previous post, but to sum it up (from my perspective :); Sling is the following;
1) Can be deployed as stand-alone or as Servlet (It includes Jetty - which is a nice, slim application server)
2) It's OSGi compliant, and can be configured with the OSGi Admin Service
3) It's a generic resource tree, stored in Jackrabbit, a JCR implementation.
4) All resources (web pages, pictures, scripts, et.c. are referenced using REST principles, leveraging HTTP GET, POST, DELE, et.c. to manage resources.
6) All resources can be accessed using standard WebDAV
So what Sling looks like to me, right now is the perfect thin-server. Sling can be a JSP/ish Server-side Web framework, if you want, but it also fits perfectly into a role where the server-side scripts only implement business logic, and format data, which is requested by the client.
Stay tuned. Further bulletins as events warrants.
