The Apache folks just started with their own J2EE server "Geronimo", 
I follow the list loosly to understand what that involves.
So far it looked like providing a lot different services, like
messaging frameworks. Part of that should be possible in Erlang as well.

I like the idea to provide Java equivalents (similiar or better features
but not implemented in Java).
Yaws is a cool example.

Stuff like struts.
I also saw attempts to provide Web equivalents of traditional GUI widgets.
Myself I had to recode a treeview widget in PHP latetly.
