an example of Front Man

My web.xml is getting out of control with servlet mappings, so for my next app I'd like to use the Front Man technique. I've read Bears article and the Redirect-After-Post article on serverside, but I'd really like to see some sample code. Does anyone know of an application written using this technique/pattern that I can examine? Maybe there is something out on SoureForge or GitHub?

Awesome. I didn't realize you had built an entire framework around this technique. Thanks.
