>> "Jon, you want programmers to use VA products and learn about them? Cause
some "pull" in the market and not just "push"?   Then let us have a CD-ROM
for play,  _AND_  an account on an AS/400 on the internet that we can mess
around in, without disturbing our current machines and bosses.  It won't
cost you guys much, and we can all play to our hearts content." <<

We've had CDs available for most (if not all) of the VA family at different
times.  Right now there are try-and-buy versions available for both VA Java and
VA RPG.  There was a version of VA Generator available a while ago - and I know
another "package" CD of VA tools is being prepared right now.

Not sure what you mean about needing access to a 400 - most of these tools can
be used against your own 400 with no additional software needed.  If there's a
specific product for which this would make sense, we'd certainly be prepared to
look at it.  Right now, you can arrange demos for some products on the Dallas
demo centre systems, but not all products are available and it requires
involvement by your IM rep.
