From the literature I've read about this product, it appears to be a
fairly serviceable tool for the development of web applications which
hit on informix databases. Anyone care to confirm or contest this? Are
there tools (in the same price range--$2500) that are indisputably
better?

Thanks,

Paul

Paul,

You should also take a look at IQ/LiveWeb.  They will be releasing
a version you can download in the next couple of weeks. I just finished
a class on this product and was very impressed. It allows you to
generate both static and dynamic html reports from an Informix database.
IQ's web site is www.iqsc.com.

I really can't contest this, as I don't know enough about VPE WebBuilder, but
I know of a product that is probably better.

Take a look at JAM/Web 2.0.  It can support Informix, Sybase, Oracle, etc,
with native drivers.  It generates JAVA-script, HTML, etc, plus you can add your
own, plus the code you write can live back on the server, or on other servers in
a three-tier environment.  It supports inheritance, visual drag-n-drop development.
JAM runs natively on Win.31, Mac (6800, PPC), OS/2, Unix(character-mode and Motif),
VMS, etc.  I think JAM/Web Server runs on Solaris, SunOS, and Win-95 now,
and on others soon, but if you go three-tier the services can be built and run
on lots of other JAM platforms, like HP-UX, DG-UX, VMS, etc.  It supports
team development, has a visual repository, source-code control (works with
SCCS and PVCS), screen wizards, three-tier wizards, etc.

Oh, it also supports business graphics (charts, graphs-pretty things like that).

So maybe JAM/Web is better, but it really depends on what your needs are.

I think you can download the JAM/Web toolkit (JAM/Web 1.0) at the JYACC website,
but the 2.0 version is undergoing final QA and I think is supposed to ship in
the next week or so (you might want to call to confirm this).

Take a look at www.jyacc.com for details.  Or send me email, and I can put you
in touch with the folks at JYACC.

Good luck,
