Data Representations to Exhibit at Java One (from Sal Danna)
Data Representations are the makers of Simplicity, a RAD tool for Java that runs on OS/2 and eCS.

Come see the latest Simplicity RAD tools, at JavaOne in the Data Representations booth, #1606. We will be demonstrating all of our tools to meet your needs.
If your programming combines J2ME and J2EE your dreams will come true when you see Simplicity for Mobile Servers. Simplicity for Mobile Servers consists of special versions of Simplicity Enterprise and Simplicity for Mobile Devices allowing them to build both the front and back ends of a program simultainously.

This visual, component-based, rapid applications development environment comes with a built-in development server leaving your mission critical server free from development chores. Developers can add functionality to their servlets including working with JDBC/ODBC databases, XML documents, selecting form data, and interacting with Enterprise JavaBean Technology.
Its open API lets a developer create their own components for adding
custom functionality to servlets.
Component modules such as Form, DataBase, Table, EJB, and XML Export are
selected from a tool palette and then dragged and dropped onto the composer in a logical order. Next the developer highlights what properties of a component to export and instantly generates and exports XML formatted code.

It's that simple!

However, creating a dynamic servlet and exporting XML data is only the
beginning. The next tool is an enhanced version of Simplicity for Mobile
Devices for creating midlets in MIDP for PDA∆s, phones and pagers. For
communication purposes it includes the Simplicity XML Transaction Caching Engine. The XML Transaction Caching Engine eliminates the need to write a custom parser that accepts and sends XML data communication between a server and handset. It automates the transfer of data between the server and mobile device. First it parses XML data and maps it to the integrated MIDP application. Then it caches requests and responses to the server in the handset if the server isn't available. All the while it offers features that automate the development of the midlet. Features such as "execution on the fly" and "Code Sourcerer" make designing a breeze.
Come see us and we will be happy to demonstrate how you can use these and our other RAD tools.

IBM: Porting OS/2 Software to Linux (from Timur Tabi)
There's an article on IBM's "eServer Developer Domain" that talks about porting OS/2 apps to Linux. What makes it interesting is the discussion of differences between OS/2 and Linux, (especially the weaknesses in Linux compared to OS/2.
Slashdot has a discussion on this article here and they also have another idiotic discussion about the "death" of OS/2 here. I ask all OS/2 users to remind those morons that in order for a product to be declared dead, it would make sense if it were no longer sold, updated, and supported.

The Sad Parable of OS/2 (from Adrian Gschwend)
