Olio sounds good, but there's nothing related with Java, Web, frameworks or
anything else... (or, is just me who couldn't find any information about
this word?)

So, because of the lack of co-relation between Olio and Java Webkits, I
found that there's an word which could fit better: Jawi

Could also be an acronymous of Java Webkits Incubator =)
