I absolutely agree in all aspect you say here. But I'm also talking about
iSeries programmers skills like (RPG, COBOL), library list, joblog
(wrkactjob), open files, etc. And all what we are used to use on this

I'm one of these programmers who never started with Java, but one of them
needing to make modern programs (html, web services, xml, Java Scripts etc.)
and still be able to use dspjoblog, libl, ovrdbf, dtaara? In other words; I
would NOT be happy with an http server running outside OS400 (like Apache).
But I'm happy with a Native ILE http server that can interface directly with
RPGLE, CBLLE, CLP etc. (IceBreak)

I don't quite follow what you're saying, but it sounds like you may be
talking about using a persistant connection...

Green screeners need to get past the one job one user mentality when
web programming... at least for the most part. Every request is
different, and could be from anyone. That's where persistance or a
variation thereof comes in handy (ie session variables, cookies... blah

I have to disagree. Persistent connections are a requirement for
high-performance applications. You need to keep heavyweight application
artifacts like open data paths and.SQL cursors around between calls; you
can't afford to rebuild them for every request. I've used persistent
connections with JSP Model 2 from the get-go, and EGL will also support
persistent connections.

Yes, there are some applications where statelessness is required,
specifically those with thousands of anonymous external connections (think
storefront or blog), but business applications for authenticated users are
not in that category.
It's simple.. and I'd rather create eRPG SDK or CGIDEV2 templates
than DDS any day.... :)
And me, I'd rather use a real WYSIWYG editor! JSF removes all of that
