On the one hand, I was looking for tools that I might be able to bring into an experimental project I've been considering, a kind of reinvention of the financial mathematical modeling that has occupied varying amounts of my spare time since 1986. I'd build the reinvention by integrating old (and, ultimately, new) mathematical/analytic formulas with important Java/JVM technologies that are present in projects, that could be useful in my project. Then, I'd also write blogs and articles about how I used the technologies, adding to the wealth of available documentation. I've done this before -- see Porting a Project from Visual Studio .NET to Mono and Analyzing Statistics with GNU R, for example. But, as I did this wandering, I was struck by the complexity of some of the larger projects and tools -- for example Hudson, Jersey, Shoal, Grizzly. By complexity, I don't necessarily mean that implementing and using these projects is difficult. I don't mean that at all.
