Hi Rich,

Hi Bala,

I just want to make sure I understand what you're asking.  Are you 
trying to get this running on WebLogic 8.1?  If so... unfortunately, it 
won't work.  Beehive requires things like Servlet 2.4 / JSP 2.0 which 
aren't part of 8.1.  If you want to try this out on WebLogic, you can 
give WebLogic 9.0 (Diablo) beta a shot... or you can try it on Tomcat 
5.0.x, or on JOnAS 4.1.4 patched for Java 5 (see the thread "Running 
Beehive on JOnAS, from Bryan Che).

If you're looking for information on the programming model (annotations) 
support, or details on how this got implemented, I'll defer to Carlin, 
who submitted the patch for Tiles support.
