And this is wat's so great about this forum.  There are probably at least
half a dozen perfectly viable ways to skin this particular cat.  If you lean
towards the dynamism and leading edge nature of open source solutions, David
has a great depth of experience.  If you want a pure RPG solution, either
Brad's e-RPG (though he seems to be a bit scarce of late) or Nathan's custom
server mechanism.  If you want a vanilla JSP/servlet solution that will work
on multiple platforms and is quick to implement, my product is probably the
best.  And if you don't mind paying for the required interactive capacity
(trying to avoid the "tax" word <grin>), then WebFacing is probably a good
starting point.

Heck, if you're willing to redevelop your systems or you're starting from
scratch, then Lansa or Synon may even be a good bet.

Interestingly enough, though, is the fact that none of the "commercial"
vendors are actually in the running in these discussions.  I've heard very
few success stories, and quite a few not-so-successful stories of the Jacada
and JWalk folks.
