I am interested in setting up some web services that may have to handle large volumes of users. I don't need to worry about UI development, just service development. sMash appeals to me because of some of its built-in capabilities (simpler syntax, integration with Ivy, etc.) but I'm worried about how it will scale. For example, can I deploy sMash in a cluster or repackage Java/Groovy-based sMash applications as WARs?
Does anyone have experience with both sMash and Wink?

We cannot repackage sMash apps as WARs. We put up a proof of technology last year called the packager (Link:
http://www.projectzero.org/packager/) that would decompose a sMash app into an EAR, and allow deployment in a WAS environment. Not being updated/maintained/supported, but its there to play with and gather feedback.
You could put a cluster of sMash nodes behind a balancer of some sort, being careful of session/user storage and the like. Atomic service transactions should be fine.
I have no experience with wink. Can't comment on that.
