Good points Franco. The main area's I have found problems is when I try to start up the JVM for each users job, or rather, OS/400 starts up a JVM for each user before they access the Java code being called. It would be great if users could share a named JVM, but I am sure there would be complications there also. It would almost be like the OS/400 folks having to rewrite a servlet engine JVM for the native side of things. The way around this is to have your RPG (or what have you) talk to the Java via data queues. This makes it so the Java is only running in one batch job (emphasis on batch) and the JVM startup is only incurred once. I have an article coming out in the next week in ibmsystemsmag.com that gives example of this approach through some open source code I wrote.

Place a little PC connected (no changes required) and it works maybe 1:100 faster. Ciao (make problems ?)
