my collegue had to reinstall VA 3 times in one week ;-) that much about
stability. Maybe it all depends on what you´re doing (right or wrong,

we want to run the servlets in tomcat. they run well in the Websphere
but we have problems getting them to run in a "non-ibm" server. Therefore we
created a "HelloWorld" servlet. But till now we didn´t get it running in
I can send you sourcecode for that easy example.

right now we have a 128K ISDN connection to the AS400 machine. Next week
we will have a 2MB access. Let´s see if we get better results :-)

its a simple "select * from table", not to complex, or is it? hehe

We use the AS400 tool-beans. Lets take the grid-bean. How do you sort
the different collumns? Why does it take so much time to build the grid?
It seems that we are not allone, cause IBM´s DB2 Tools are now
build with Java, too. The grid is a bit faster, but it´s way to slow. I saw
devexpress-grid component in Delphi5 C/S and that one builds 20.000 rows
in milliseconds. No way to reach that level of speed for java.
My colleague is taking lessons this week. Next week we will try again to
solve the problems with exporting the beans to tomcat.
Maybe we can speak about what we´re doing  next week?
thanx for your help
i appreciate that much
