Richard,

I read your article in IBMSystemsMag.com and frequently see posts of your
.NET love. I am curious to know if you have found a "comfortable" spot in
where to keep your business logic and controller flow when using .NET and
the i5?

I think the business logic, controller whatever model talk overly
complicates things. Better to just get in there and write the code.
.NET is free, it is available on every windows PC or server that
connects to the as400, it is leading edge technology and there are
terrific improvements in store for 2008.

where you draw the line between code that runs on the windows forms
client, the asp.net server and the central as400 will vary from
project to project and also depends on your level of expertise.

what with the prevalence of legacy and packaged applications, how many
programmers are involved in business logic programming? my guess is
most programming today involves giving users access to existing data
or building small modular data capture and entry apps which are then
meshed with the legacy system. In cases like this, .NET is the ideal
platform to work in.
