I think that recursion is extremely useful when doing BOM processing. I
have many subprocedures that use this technique and it seems to be
extremely fast. I think that applies as a business logic program.

RE: multi-threading

I will admit the average iSeries app never really "needs" to get into
like threads or recursion (although I do hope people would agree that
threading in java on the 400 is better than starting a new job and JVM!!!)

I do think recursion has its place in programming, but not really at the
business logic level, where it's just do as your told code monkey!!!!

So I ask all of you for an application that requires multiple

a single process. Any real world examples out there?

I think it is a bit like recursion Neill - it seems like a good idea,
but there seem to be limited practical applications for it.
