Hi Eric,

     There are already several Java 5250 clients out there, though,
I think most of them are commercial projects...   I know that
Mochasoft has one that you can try for free...   www.mochasoft.dk

So the question is, is it worth the effort of developing such an
animal, when there are already similar clients available?

To me, the curses client is GREAT help.  I have old computers running
the curses client that aren't fast enough to be able to run X, or
especially Gnome or KDE nicely.
