      Description

      Over sixty methods of the JCA Session Handle do not work, and cannot as the JCA exists today. I do not think that the JCA should be an Apache project. It's existence at this point amounts to a stumbling block for developers. It reflects very poorly on the project and the Apache Foundation as a whole. The website has an unacceptable number of dead links - mailing lists et al. The project seems to be still developing, but there is no indication of what they are working on. I will go so far as to say it was sabotaged. (See my post on Stack Overflow, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23186713/has-the-jca-ever-worked-it-cant-according-to-its-documentation) No one would have developed all of the code in the JCA just to see it lined out. And no one would have associated this with JSR-283 if it could not, as it can't access a repository node.
      I am submitting this because there is no place else that I can, short of trying to complain to the Apache Foundation itself, which I hope to eventually be able to do.
      I wasted a considerable amount of time working on this and am left with nothing to show for it. For me it is a Critical issue, although I have no hope of seeing it resolved.
