The language of all of our documents and error messages is Japanese,
Japanese ML is very active, and all committers are Japanese.

I think Seasar2 is more popular than Spring in Japan.
The following survey shows it. Sorry, it's Japanese.
S2Dao is a part of Seasar2.

The userbase of the Seasar2 is only Japan,
because we don't prepare english documents for the current version(2.4).

Yes. As described the above, Japanese ML is very active,
and ISID, which is my compary, provides business support.

Unfortunately, we don't prepare english documents for the current version(2.4).
