Yes, we have and are working with the Remote AWT. We ported our Sun, NT, Win95 JAVA Point of Sale (POS) to the OS/400 beta V4R2 in December '97 using an IBM NC1000 as the client. The only problems encountered were where to put the images, they had to be in the boot directory of the NC, and the DB2/400 interface took a lot of work. Other than that, the initial performance was a little slow. I had to throw out the old way of tuning an AS/400 and convert to a "thread" based tuning environment. Our server application supports not only the thin clients, but any client running the client portion of our java application. The NC1000, with max memory over 10MB ethernet, is as fast as all of the other "fat" clients after initial load of the client code. We have both POS cash registers with scanners, card swipes, and printers running and touch screen kiosks with scanners running at the same time.

If I came up against a thorny problem, I would post here, but I haven't! One thing we haven't tried is the Remote AWT (Java program runs on the '400 but displays its GUI output on a PC). Has anyone worked with this? Are there any gotchas? -- ____________________________________________________________ Glenn Holmer email@example.com Programmer/Analyst phone: 414.263.8827 Weyco Group, Inc. fax: 414.263.8808 +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to JAVA400-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to JAVA400-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to JAVA400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +--- +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to JAVA400-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to JAVA400-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to JAVA400-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
