There are still no reports in!

Hello,
many things have changed on sci.math.symbolic since two years ago:
The rulebased integrator Rubi developed by Albert Rich came along as did version 8 of Mathematica; the Wolfram Researchers are rumored to be working on a new integrator and have stopped posting to the group; all posts by Albert Rich were deleted from the Google archive while Rubi's executable rule system morphed into a merely humanreadable formula collection; and the regular CyberTester messages have finally ceased as well.
I doubt that all of these changes are unrelated.
But one thing hasn't changed: there are still no reports in on Martin's second elementary double integral, as posted in October 2009:

Define:
jxx(x,y,z) := x*y*(2*(x^2+y^2+z^2)^(3/2)  2*z^3  3*z*(x^2+y^2)) / ((x^2+y^2+z^2)^(3/2)*(x^2+y^2)^2)
jxy(x,y,z) := ((x^2y^2)*(x^2+y^2+z^2)*((x^2+y^2+z^2)^(1/2)  z)  z*x^2*(x^2+y^2)) / ((x^2+y^2+z^2)^(3/2)*(x^2+y^2)^2)
Now, what is the simple, elementary result of:
int(int(jxx(x, ya/2, z) * jxx(x, y+a/2, z) + jxy(x, ya/2, z) * jxy(x, y+a/2, z), x, inf, inf), y, inf, inf)
where z >= 0? Simple transformations leading to the solution of a related problem via elementary antiderivates were shown in

Perhaps somebody wants to give the second double integral another try. Is your CAS no weakling anymore?
Martin.
