I wrote this before we had our discussions about OO.  Actually wrote it over
a year ago.  But, our discussion about OO definatly helped me realize what I
could do to improve my ILE techniques.

No, but if it was an application that needed it, it would.  This is a order
history inquiry system.

A customer shouldn't be able to update their order history, and that's what
this is.  I have no desire what so ever to use a browser as a UI for DB
updates.  I'll stick with green screens for that, at least for now.

I really don't see it as that amazing.  Even less after seeing some of the
stuff Andrew Borts has done with his sites.  Wow.  Now THAT's an
accomplishment.  (Read about it in an upcoming Showcase! plug plug)

Thanks.  Now go get married and tell your wife to be to keep reminding you
that it CAN be done with eRPG!  :)  On second thought, don't.  You shouldn't
be worrying about this type of stuff on the most wonderful days of your
life.  (Was for me a year and a half ago.)

We all can get along if we focus more on getting the job done, rather than
the technology used to do it.  In the end, that's all that matters.
