[REBOL] Re: the answers/ REBOL in a Corporate Context

From: dvydra2::yahoo::com at: 28-Mar-2001 13:48

All, As a corporate developer (at least during the day :) ), I would like to propose that ActiveX and Java may indeed play a role in REBOL's future. What is the big deal about wrapping REBOL inside an ActiveX component? AFAIK its a pretty non-intrusive procedure? What about calling out to ActiveX since REBOL already loads dynamic libraries. Regarding Java -- many people still think of it as a programming language, but in many contexts it is the operating system for modern business applications -- the Application Server. So porting REBOL to Java just adds another platform. Speaking of platforms, any ideas on a REBOL port to MS .NET? David --- Gabriele Santilli <[g--santilli--tiscalinet--it]> wrote:
