Subject: RE: [emergency] Use Case

Thanks Lee,

I'm fairly sure Elysa meant "Statement of Use" 
not "Use Cases," especially not UML Use Cases.

As a side question, can you work with a Java 
Server Faces EDXL-RM application? I'm asking 
because I want to provide the application I'm 
working on (rather infrequently just now) in open 
source for other folks to adapt, extend and/or 
complete. I'm using NetBeans 6.0 as my IDE, and 
JSF is just easier and more reliable than vanilla
