I can understand your plight with having to drop a client/server model for screen scraping. It sometimes seems impossible to get people past the fact that Java and/or Client/Server are not just about GUI screens(though that is a plus for AS/400 user who are tired of the green screens), it is about object orient programming. Though I am new to Java and Object Oriented programming, and I have been a little slow to catch on (especially since I had no C experience, to help with the Java learning curve), as I get more comfortable with Java and OOP, I see the advantages of it more and more. In the end you are absolutely right a company has to answer the questions that you listed below for themselves in order for a C/S project to work. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of Buck Calabro Sent: Tuesday, July 20, 1999 5:34 PM To: 'JAVA400-L@midrange.com' Subject: RE: Topic number ONE Astonishingly, our company recently terminated development in Delphi to go to screen scraping (JWalk). It seems that "time to market" is more important than providing functionality. Of course, this brings up the topic of "what's the point of Client/Server in the first place?" Is it "presentation" (as in GUI) or is it "data exchange" (as in OLE links between databases) or something else? It has been my experience that organisations which haven't answered this question for themselves will fail at their C/S projects.
