I used Web Connection on a large public access project for a major US 
auto insurance carrier. Successful project and the IBM stuff scaled up 
nicely. I never cared for the graphical tools in the composition editor, 
and I think the HTML parts are particularly bad. For our views, we just 
coded directly to the AbtHtmlPart hierarchy (which is similar to how 
Seaside generates its HTML).
