SCOUG OS/2 For You - May 1998


April Was Java Month

It Hit the Spot

by Mark Abramowitz

In April, SCOUG members were treated to a wake-up call at SCOUG's general meeting as new president Terry Warren served up a cup of IBM's VisualAge for Java.

Both Terry and VisualAge for Java were the perfect morning brew, with Terry doing a re-write from scratch of SCOUG's raffle program. This program worked flawlessly, integrating right into the raffle program as it ran on our other machines.

If a non-programmer like me can say, "Hey, I can do that," with a development environment like VisualAge for Java, you know you've got a winner. And that's exactly what I said to myself as I watched Terry demonstrate the product. The VisualAge for Java interface looked very similar to the DBExpert interface that I had used on a project. Hmmm, I wonder what Java app I should write now? Thanks, Terry!

Of course, Terry's quick run-through in writing the raffle program begged the question from SCOUG members, "Why did it take a year to write the raffle program, when Terry was able to write it in less than an hour and a half at the meeting?!" Terry declined to comment.

Those wanting more than a taste of Java can find an on-line IBM Redbook for the product at:

And the free entry level download can be found with lots of other goodies on IBM's VisualAge for Java page at:
