        I think a bytecode compiler would be very useful for those shops
converting to Java and for those which are running web sites. I also think
that if IBM were to create one it would also demonstrate quite a
commitment to Java.
        Such a compiler would make turning existing applications into
JavaBeans or methods in Java applications relatively easy. It does show
that IBM is willing to let AS/400 users convert native methods (rpg code)
to Java bytecode.
