Again, my apologies to anyone who thinks I'v ebeen wasting their

Joel, you haven't been wasting the bandwidth. The discussion of
single-platform vs. multi-platform is an important one that needs to be had
at every shop that's thinking of replacing or modernizing their green
screens, and that of course should be every shop that has them <grin>.

However, the debate (.NET vs. J2EE vs. Web 2.0 vs. flavor-of-the-day) is
more appropriate on either the WEB400 or PC-TECH lists, depending on whether
you go browser or thick client (and MIDRANGE-TECH, probably, if you're
trying to make up your mind which way to go).

This mailing list is for people who have already made the decision to us
Java, or are evaluating Java as a possible solution. This means that
specific comparisons to other architectures such as .NET or PHP are
appropriate, as long as they focus apples to apples on specific issues (you
can do THIS thing THIS way in Ruby, but it takes THAT to do it with a JSP).

I draw the line at "Java sucks" posts, that's all.
