Those are some of the benefits I was talking about.

Yes, you're right. I have had several discussions here in some forums in México about GeoServer against Mapserver. The
same thing with gvSIG/Kosmo against QuantumGIS. I develop in Java too, but I prefer the C/C++ solutions.

It will not happen =)
By the way, I participate also in the Mapserver's list as much as I can, more often with the Mapserver/PostGIS matters.

Well, this is a surprise. I'm glad to hear that they are interested in the online interaction with the data sources. Personally
I am interested in the develop of an online geoprocessing tool. Also in introducing WFS for feeding data warehouses.

It's a risk indeed,
The situation right now is that TinyOWS community already have
some *really* power users helping on all the tests and beta phases.
and i want to thanks you all for that brilliant stuff ! :D
But the project is still missing others devs contributions as patches,
and also commercials fundings to strongly enhance again features.
And i think that MapServer umbrella, could help to be more visible
and so to help on theses two items (patches and funding)
And on an another hand, i really think that there's something like a competition
between JAVA based solutions and C/C++ ones.
So this new 'suite' could be a way to have something closer than
GeoServer or Deegree full features spectrum.
For TinyOWS project, i think the more important risk is too loose,
some of you guys, with the newsletter change.
I definitly hope it will not happens !

If fact i don't think it's still true anymore (if ever), they are
really interrested in online
edition features throught TinyOWS, and could be interrested too by geoprocessing
throught other tool in a future...
