Ah so you do lurk on Midrange. Was wondering 😊
Looking forward to testing out what you guys come up with. I think I saw you plan a C# binding. That will be nice for .Net Everywhere if so.
And for the record I don't discourage innovation whether open or closed source. Especially since I am also an inventor and work with open source a lot.....
We just need to temper new widget development with the need for core IBM DB2 data services that work consistently so that we can build the cool addons such as you are doing with confidence that the underlying data services are solid.
As a multi-platform developer me and other developers are going to pick the platforms where the data services are most stable.

subject: Re: [IBMiOSS] XMLSERVICE, RPGLE & Java error
I don't often reply to threads on midrange but here goes.
I am trying pretty hard in making sure that ILEusion will be a good replacement for XMLSERVICE. ILEusion is built on top of two other modules called ILEastic (the web server) and noxDb (JSON/XML parser + some database pieces), both of which were releases under Sitemule (who are supporting me in developing ILEusion).
I *am* for a replacement to XMLSERVICE. I originally started it because I didn't like the db2sock code base. I wanted something simple, that almost works the same, pretty schema, is modular and easy to setup. You will be able to connect to ILEusion services via stored procedure or over HTTP.
It is open source and it will stay that way. It is being supported by Sitemule to develop it and that's a good thing because it allows me to support ILEusion (and ILEastic + noxDb). That also means if you don't like something, you can stop complaining and actually make a difference by getting involved - make a fork, raise an issue, any input is good.
