I would be curious to hear the challenges of Java vs. .NET to develop rich
front-ends. Anybody have decent experience in both?

I know this is the Java list, so I fully expect to be roasted and toasted
If the goal is a GUI, and by that I am inferring a thick client and not a
browser-based solution, then why not consider .Net? You could still use
Stored Procedures on the iSeries to control your business logic and database
access, but you would also be using the native Windows GUI system to deliver
a true Windows interface. Best of both worlds, right? I'm not saying it
would be easy, but I do think it holds true to the "right tool for the right
job" motif. And by separating the data access into Stored Procedures, you
could be better prepared for that framework/platform/delivery change when it
Ken: sounds pretty good to me!
And now: Let the flaming begin!
