Subject Re: [IBO] future ...IBO-Java,IBOc++,or MSobjects ???
Author Jason Wharton
I see IBO playing a role in these multi-tier servers as the means to
communicate with the database but for me to embark on creating a whole new
thin client/packet transporting system would simply to be starting a new
product in an environment there are already lots of competitors in. ASTA is
one such product that comes to mind.

Also, you can count on me staying in the Delphi realm. I have no desire or
ambition to branch over into the JAVA, C++, or any other compiler
environment. I have pledged my support to anyone who wants to get involved
in a joint effort to port IBO's architecture into other arenas but I am not
going to do it by myself.

Thanks for the suggestions.
