What is IBM's direction?  With the shift to iSeries, it seems that IBM is
throwing it's weight to Java.  Are there long term plans to continue to
develop and extend the legacy languages?  How will the legacy languages cope
with Linux on the AS/400?  

It'll be interesting to see where IBM wants to go next... The shift from
products to services has been good for IBM but it makes navigating through
IBM's products/services mix a new adventure in business relations...

Servlets IS java.  Just a fancy shmancy "engine" required to runem.  (ie,
not as portable as applications).

I have found performace is pretty good with them, after the first call
(which can range from 5 seconds to 2 minutes I've found).  Still, nothing
seems to beat the consitancy of RPG or COBOL CGI.
