Excellent, David.  The installation page on my website
(www.zappie.net/java/javatorium/installi.htm) shows how to install BOTH Swing
1.0.3 and Swing 1.1.1.  Why?  So that users can use old-style Swing programs,
including the vaccess classes from the toolbox.  However, I push them to use
javax.swing because it's definitely the impending standard.

If you guys had released the source of the vaccess package, I would have
converted it for you <grin>.  I've already done that for the windows LookAndFeel
classes; there's a jar on my site called windowsx.jar that contains the
javax.swing.plaf.windows.* classes.

>AS/400 Toolbox for Java

BTW, I just wanted to thank you folks for the incredible work you've done on the
toolbox.  In fact, in the June/July issue of Midrange Computing's AS/400 NetJava
Expert I have an article (on converting AS/400 spooled file to PDF using
server-side Java) and in it I mention how integral the toolbox will be to the
success of Java/400.  Please, keep upo the good work.

(And now, if we could just have the JVM/400 truly integrated with the rest of
the operating system - direct calls to *JVAPGM, no QShell - we'd be in
programmer's paradise.)
