Hello there everyone! I've been listening in on the threads for a little while, and I just wanted to float a comment or two. First off: is there a good reason, other than familiarity, to use a GUI such as Visual Basic? IMO, Swing and particularly layout managers are so far ahead of fixed XY coordinate systems as to make XY systems unusable. How can you write one panel to be used reasonably on all of the myriad combinations of screen sizes and resolutions? To me, any decent GUI needs to support user sizing of the window and the fonts used within the window (and in extreme cases, the components as well). Second: I've been playing with a couple of different mechanisms for communication with the AS/400 database. I'm wondering what the benefits of the ADO/OLE DB paradigm are. Currently, my favorite mechanism is simple data queueing to/from an RPG server program on the AS/400. Clean, no hassles and fast. I write my user interface using Swing classes, and everything runs wonderfully. Where's the bang for the buck with ADO?
