[REBOL] Re: how to start?

From: mla:itinko at: 26-Apr-2002 23:44

Boris.. Having worked extensively with Java I can say that you do NOT want to use Java Applets for browser client. It's just too difficult managing the Java plug in versions across different browsers and clients. After developing a legacy app as an Applet we converted it to server side java and html client. And at a minimum use Java 1.3. There are just enough bugs in the earlier stuff to give you grey hair and sleepless nights. I do like the idea of Flash client if you are using Flash MX because of the built in GIU controls which look like the platform style controls. And you can do some really elegant stuff with it. But clients will have to have Flash Player 6 plugin. Being new to Rebol I can't see using it for GUI interface but love it for scripting and parsing. Not sure how you would implement asynchronous threads for interface event handlers which is really easy in Java. My 2 cents. Michael
