Thorbjoern,It is important to find the right time to let a given technology go.
I wouldn't say we wrote this investment off, but rather as you point out it
was manifest in a completely different end result than we originally
envisioned 12 years ago. More than happy to chat with you about technology
and experiences in the java world. It would be nice to know that the
investment is being appreciated for as long as possible J Java is still very
much strategic but increasingly we see its role in the framework and
business logic as most relevant. As a company we are brutal when it comes to
assessing development productivity
We have a legacy system written in Cobol which our customers are basically happy with, but which suffers from all the usual issues with AS/400 applications. Green screens, hard to exchange files, etc.
How would you like to start that? Tell me a bit more about what you are
doing and/or I will also make a list of bullet points about experiences that
you can take shots at. That should get things going nicely. If you are on
linked in I would prefer to do it there, as it's a LOT easier to follow a
discussion in that format. If not midrange.com is fine
