I've not used or evaluated Encap so I was a little hazy about how it works. Which is why I kept writing "encapped" to show I was just analogising. For your idea to work, several separately distributed Encap applications would have to be able to work with each other and non-encapped code. That way my code (clear source) could call your encapped applications that I've bought. Does anyone know if encap works that way? Or if it is (as I'd assumed) monolithic: one encapped application being a world on its own. (Thinking allowed here again, even encap application are monolithic, we could organise intercommunication via Rugby) Sunanda.
