Hmmm, not sure I completely understand. I thought you were
setting up a connection pool. That's really outside the application
and available to all apps. So, the JDBC resources should have been
available when you set up the pool. I assume I'm missing something,
but the major thing is that it works for you. Good deal.

That was the first test :) I havent't repeated that one because I
couldn't get past the fact that Glassfish couldn't find the class for a
context listener that was definitely there. I was looking at VWP again
this morning, so I thought I'd give it a try with a simple app using
the AS/400 and deployed to Glassfish.

I haven't used Visual Web Pack for several reasons. The biggest
is that I'm using Facelets, which isn't supported by VWP. That
allows me to eliminate JSP (yay!) A close second is that with VWP,
you're tied to the Rave components. I use the RI whenever possible,
and am currently using RichFaces for special functionality and ajax
support. Plus, in the end, and this is just for my style of
programming, it doesn't really buy me much. But it's certainly a fast
way to get an 80% solution, which may be Good Enough.

Re. Facelets, there's this, although I don't know how mature it is:


The jury's definitely still out on VWP, but some impressive progress was
made in recent weeks WRT performance and bugfixes in preparation for
NetBeans 6.0 (RC1 should be Monday). I still think it might be a
painless way to get RPG programmers onto the Java bandwagon in our

Please keep us informed, and I'll let you know if I run into any
major snags on my project. So far, other than some grief figuring
out *exactly* what it wants for Active Directory LDAP authentication,
I haven't seen any real issues with Glassfish.

OK, and thanks again.
