Basic Java OpenID Implementation

I've been working on a Java implementation of both a consumer and an ID 

My goal is for the core stuff to be usable in existing webapps without 
editing the code. I've started defining the interfaces for that, but 
there are still things that are hard-coded. It's maybe halfway there.

In the meantime, though, the project functions as a working example, and 
I suppose in a pinch it could be edited for use in "real life". Be 
warned -- there are definitely a couple of important checks that are 
currently being skipped, and performance is going to suffer until at 
least some things are cached.

If anyone else on the list is working in Java and would like to test 
this stuff out (or even help with development), you can find all the 
source and a sample installation at:

I'd love to hear any comments, questions, complaints, or suggestions.
