I see no cause to believe that this software is based on (J)Sword.

He has taken some of our content. From what I can tell, it's all public 
domain content. He also shows us the courtesy of linking back to 
CrossWire and giving us credit as the source of his content. That's more 
than I can say for the content we produced that inexplicably (without 
permission, notice, or credit given) has found its way into e-Sword.
