I agree. I think that a significant portion of the applications should
be some sort of database access though.

The majority of Java webapps (and I think we ought to be thinking
about competing with Java webapps) are database driven things (maybe
via EJBs) either e-commerce or subscription revenue models.

If we could show several nice alternatives to Struts and JSF then I
think we'd be doing a valuable service.

Note : I don't think the other webapp mentioned is suitable if it's a
webmail tool. Webmail tools aren't common development targets.
