Java EE 6 - Who's In?

Been a while since I've written anything, so I'll ease into the waters with this one - it's been over a year since Java EE 6 was released with some very cool updates that I've discussed here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here (dang, I was busy!). So I'm interested in hearing what kind of adoption it's gotten so far. Anybody?

Now, I know that there still aren't a lot of servers that support it -- let's see, there's Glassfish, and then there's... hmmm... well, I think Resin 4 has been released... JBoss 6 isn't quite there yet, nor are any of the more expensive products, at least not to my knowledge (I'll be perfectly honest - I don't pay much attention to them!)

One that interests me is SIwpas - it's a Web Profile implementation based on Tomcat, and apparently several other open source products, although I fear it suffers from AAS (Awful Acronym Syndrome!). But the question is, is anyone using it, or the other products? I'd love to know!

BTW - the last time I blogged about JBoss not having a server released after an extended period of time, they released it the very next day - if I were a bettin' man, I'd put money on JBoss 6 going final tomorrow, but since I'm not, and since no one releases software on a Saturday, I'll have to go with a firm guess that'll be out soon!
