    Is iIS moving to Java interfaces?

    807581
      On the cuenet list, someone has commented:

      "What I see happening is a few new versions with the 4gl which have be great but I also see movement away from the 4gl in the ils adapter kits. Actually, the new kit doesn't even support 4gl. It seems that the Java assimilation has begun."

      Is it true that current and future adapter kits do not provide for 4GL? I personally have no interest in switching to Java. Some official comment?

          Not an official comment, just my observations.

          The previous version of the Adapter Development kit generated TOOL and Java. The new version, XAD 2.0, generates Java and C.

          As iIS 3.0 supports SOAP, the SOAP generation capabilities built into UDS 5.0 make the TOOL code generation of the Adapter Development kit redundant. Or is there something I'm missing?
