Thanks to all honorable list members for your good will to help in our
evaluation. I am posting the brief project description below. We are
evaluating applets, Flash, JSP, JavaWebStart and other technologies for
client implementation. And we wonder if your Rebol IOS can fit into any part
of the architecture. Currently I am under impression that it is some
inter-organizational communication environment like Lotus Notes or Filosafe.
If so, I know not how to use it to distribute the product to paid customers
on the web. But anyways, to feel my effort complete, I want to install and
try your soft even if it is of no use in the project.
Under review is mail flow management system that is an upgrade of existing
Mailloop5.0 Windows stand-alone application. (autoreplies, address list
accumulation and stuff, recruiters for instance can use it a lot) Now it
will become ASP or thin client version. Most of the processing moves to
server component. The client part is hopefully to be implemented in 2
kinds - stand-alone (initially thought - Java1.1) and some web version
(initially thought - applet). In this initial intention applet and
1.1stand-alone version must have some common code base. The server component
is to be written in C++ by Rick and Paul in parallel to Java client team
that is not yet hired. Apparently, stand-alone Java client is also not a
final decision. For instance, Paul votes for native code stand-alone client,
because he has experience in C++ GUI (so he can do both client and server
parts). The final decision may depend on who will be hired for a client
team. It can also change during development. For instance, some
semi-functional prototype may be developed as initially intended and then
Boris, You might get a step up on your evaluation if you tell the list what
you need to accomplish. There are lots of ideas and pre-written code that
could get you going. And the list people are amazingly helpful ...
