Sorry for the late notice for this meeting. We had a confirmed speaker on a topic of True64/HPUX Futures, but as of last week, a new series of layoffs happened, and just like last year, they essentially eliminated our planned meeting.
Our friends from Saucon Technologies were able to fill in on short notice with what should be a great topic: Japple.
Japple is an enterprise-class middleware platform released under the GNU Lesser General Public License.
Japple was originally created by Saucon Technologies for use in their client projects. It is written in Java and has been successfully used in enterprise class applications. Japple has been successfully deployed on a variety of hardware and software platforms including Jakarta Tomcat, iPlanet, IBM WebSphere, and BEA Weblogic.
On January 31, 2002 at this year's LinuxWorld Expo at the Javits Center, Saucon announced the first Open Source release, Japple 2.0, which can be combined with Apache, Tomcat, Java and Mozilla to provide an end-to-end Open Source Web application solution.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming meeting on Zope which is another Web development technology.

The 1CMP building is situated: South of Liberty Street, North of Pine Street, East of Broad/Nassau Street and West of William Street. The building is one block east of Broadway, right behind 140 Broadway.
The closest entrance to the conference center is from Nassau Street, first elevator bank from the Nassau Street entrance.
The building is on a raised platform. Walk up the outside stairs at Nassau Street and head for the guard's station at the south-west corner of the building. Tell the guards you are heading for Unigroup. They will inspect your ID and carry-ins and direct you to the meeting facility, assuming you are on the Unigroup RSVP list.
Once you get upstairs, enter the conference facility through its main doors. There is a bank of large monitors to the left of the entrance which should direct you to the Unigroup meeting room (the room may vary from month to month). To the right of the main entrance is the concierge's desk, ask for help there if you need anything. The conference facility has two levels, keep in mind that the Unigroup meeting may be up the staircase on its upper level.
As always, also look out for Unigroup signs marking the path to the meeting room. Also note, if you come early, we may not have our own signs in place yet (we have to commute there too).
