Dave, I waited to answer because I wanted to get a better sense of what
you wanted.  Despite what Pete said, I don't make a blanket
recommendation of JSP for everything <g>.  There are a number of query
tools that are quite powerful, and if they meet your needs they're
easier to implement than a from-scratch JSP/servlet solution.

However, you've already recognized that query tools, no matter how
sophisticated, usually fall short in the business logic arena, and you
seem to be implying that you need a little more than that.  If that's
indeed the case, then I do indeed recommend a simple, thin-veneer JSP
approach.  The JSP layer is very thin, little more than a display file
in HTML, and all of your business logic is written in RPG.  I've got
clients using this sort of architecture right now to great advantage.
It's easy to write, easy to maintain, extremely good looking and very,
very fast.

Joe
