Then they don't want Bugzilla, plain and simple. Assuming you just wanted
something to interface in certain clearly defined ways with Bugzilla, then
getting information via XML for display in a J2EE application should work
just fine.

But if you're doing anything else, then don't use Bugzilla. I don't
understand this preoccupation some people have with wanting to use
Bugzilla, but in some other language.

There's already a Java-based bug tracker if you want that (Apache uses it,
I guess). You (meaning Joel, I guess) should also talk to Jason (see bug
