Greg, I have done a fair amount of investigating emWare, but I ended up making up my own little 'poor man's portal' for wireless data serving. I have an HC12 design which would easily fit in an 8 bit MCU like the HC11, but I chose the 16-bit HC12 for room for big applications, and faster math. An alternative (I hear but haven't proven) is that SMX (I think that is the name) has a TCP/IP stack that runs on an 8-bit MCU, so if that is really true, you can bypass the emWare gobbledy-gook an go straight to the internet yourself. Then your own imagination and creativity with Rebol become the bottleneck... (which is more like a Mason jar than a Coke bottle, I presume) (should I be telling you all this?...;-) ) Do you actually use emWare in this, or are you rolling your own?

I have been looking into to be used on 8 bit MCU. They use java in their localhost sever. Because you can store web pages on this little servers, I am about to try putting a rebol page on it. This is so that the PC front end is rebol, to control a little control unit ( alarm, PLC, lighting control....). Has anyone else looked at this?

I'm curious as to what you guys are doing here. I don't believe there is Rebol support for any of the OS's mentioned so that must mean you are interested only in Rebol on the "server" side where your device is communicating with a Rebol app on the network? Anyway, my last company used SMX (their stack is called RTIP) on an 8-bit MCU and it worked quite well. Rodney
