How closely does VARPG follow RPGLE?  And how are its Java writing
skills?  One of the funniest things I ever heard about VARPG was from
Phil Coultard in a seminar.

"It writes Java, but it's not really OO.  It's more like just O."

I always thought it was a crime that IBM didn't push VARPG harder.

Nope - VARPG generates Java and then compiles it down to bytecode.

You can target it to run as an application or as an applet.
