1. I liked your java site a lot, even used some of the stuff.

2. In my opinion, however, we do need to build classes with portability
in mind which means less usage of the tool box since the tool box
classes are as400 specific.

3. I myself would volunteer to do some rpg-java code comparisions if

4. Keep up the good job
