Hi Glenn.

You have many choices that are good but for AS/400 RPG programmers
moving to Java I believe VisualAge for Java Enterprise can't be beat.
The reason is very good visual builders can help new programmers
develop applications quickly before they are Java or OO experts
for Servlets, Applets, RMI, Jdbc, object persistence etc.   Other IDE's
require more Java skills before you can produce the equivalent
applications ....    I train AS/400 RPG Programmers on Java and it's
clear that is the fastest tool to transition with.   If you have other
C++, Visual Basic etc, the other IDE's particlularly JBuilder are
very good choices for those folks.....
