JCS can be used as a standalone API without using Turbine framework. JCS is actually part of Torque subproject which used to be under Turbine framework. It's now decoupled and a subproject of db.apache.org. JCS jar file is not available as a separate file to download. To get the JAR, you need to download Torque release. Check out http://db.apache.org/torque/status.html for release status and http://db.apache.org/builds/torque/release/3.1/ for downloading latest release.

    I downloaded torque-3.1.zip from db.apache.org

    Inside the zip file, I found jcs-20030822.182132.jar

    Why is JCS embedded inside of Torque?

    Is JCS dependent upon Torque?

    What is the status of the Turbine JCS project? It's now part of Torque, but all docs still point to the jakarta.apache.org page (which is completely outdated apparently) and not to the db.apache.org page.

    Also, the JCS jar is indeed included in the Torque download, as you mention. However, I can't find the source code anywhere on the Apache site.

    Is all this confusion temporary or is JCS being fased out as a project?
