Setting up a web driven applet, which is what you're doing, is a Java "hello
world" that takes no more than an 1/2 hour to get going. The DB backend for
Java is completely portable to any DB that you might choose as a default,
as well as presenting a common interface for accessing those DBs. The APIs
are mature and the JVM is rock solid reliable provided that you don't choose
a crappy platform to run it.
I can totally understand this, given that I have done development in JAVA
before, for commercial purposes. It would be nice if more people can
support the JDK patchkit producers in fixing JAVA support.
Bill, since you were helping FreeBSD at one time with JAVA, it would be
nice if *you* lent a hand to the JDK patchkit producers and us in
strengthening JAVA on DragonFly. ;-)
