Just got started, too.

Installing Tomcat is a simple click & point operation on Windows. 
However, if you want to put it up on a production machine, I guess 
you'll spend considerable time setting it up securely.

I believe what you are quoting there probably refers to the whole 
spectrum of ebXML solutions, commercial and non-commercial. You might be 
better of with a commercial product.

I used to work for a company that sold a product based on a J2EE 
application server. Setting up the product on the customer site and 
integrating it into their environment usually took more than a man 
month. Open source, non-commercial projects tend to require the user to 
spend more time with the product.
