We are in the very early stages of research(time measured in days not
months) into using Java on our AS/400's.  And the first thing that really
concerns us is running Java clients on our PC's.  We have not explored any
tools, like Visual Java, yet!  So this may be a mute point.  The only thing
we have played around with is the free Java stuff from Sun and we realize
that there are more programmer friendly compilers out there, but what about
executing a Java Client application on the PC(Windows 95/98).
1. Is there any way around running the Java application out of MS-Dos
Window?  It hurts the selling point when presenting to users and mangers
2. Is it better to create Java applets and let a browser handle question #1?
We were leaning toward applications, but again I can honestly say we have
not done enough research to make an educated decision.

Thanks for any advice in advance,
