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. Joe Pluta www.plutabrothers.com
