programmers have yet to program in RPG IV!, even though its been around
for years now!

                Haha!!! Java will never replace RPG.  Replace is a big
word, and Java, as it
                is now, is a stronger client side language that server
side.

                And no, I am NOT against Java.  I'm just realistic.
