Ulf Licht gave this testimonial of his use of GJTAPI:
Even if I only report the problems I encounter while using
GJTAPI I have to tell you that its a lot of fun to work with
GJTAPI. I am the only developer at (organization deleted) working on the
implementation right now and I already have a
working Core-JTAPI after not too many hours of work. This is amazing!
