Here is another relevant web site to this discussion, which I got from IBM Education XML whitepaper -- Providing Web access to business applications and data from emerging devices will continue to grow in importance. A new whitepaper, "AS/400 Business Data Goes Mobile Thanks to XML," shows how a number of technologies -- XML, XML enablers, Web application servers, Java, servlets pervasive computing devices, etc. -- can be used with AS/400 to provide an application solution.
