I don't have that much input re. your original question but if you're inclined to use Java one thing to look at is Google Web Toolkit (GWT) which allows you to write the UI in Java and compiles it to Javascript etc. portable to all web browsers.


Thanks for the input Richard. I had been looking at JQuery to get some fairly smooth client-side UI behaviour but already came across issues that required debug(h)ging Javascript. GWT was mentioned as an alternative due to the relative ease of debugging Java.

That per-seat license issue others have mentioned would probably not be terribly relevant for the non-public module I am scoping, but sounds quite restrictive for public facing applications.



Debugging Javascript is not very difficult these days. Firefox has a very neat plugin, Firebug, which lets one set breakpoints, watch variables and objects, step through code et al. Safari has similar features. Even IE8 has these developer tools built in.

I am sure they see it; they either do not want to or cannot do anything about it. Perhaps the more arcane something is, the better it is for services revenue.

IIRC, the functions and files that you mention are Superlayer and not native PRO-IV. Or am I wrong?

It is quite likely that the file definition in PRO-IV does not match the table definition in Oracle. I have had a problem like this quite sometime back and I figured out that this was the cause of the problem. Perhaps it is something else in your case, but it is worth a second look, IMO.
