      Adrian has been busy over here:

      http://www.open-bpm.org/

      adding some great stuff. It's still a work in
      progress, but three things are in progress:


      1. A "real" MVS machine for people to connect to
      with a "real" terminal emulator.


      2. A web-based 3270 emulator so that all you need
      to do is find a working web browser and you're in.
      In a real live request, Linas asked me once:

      "Could you provide a login on some machine that
      has the current source code on it?"

      (he wanted to look at the GCC source code with a
      view to fixing some of the compiler bugs).

      For various reasons, some people find it difficult
      to install software on their machine. Especially
      they wouldn't trust something like an entire
      IBM mainframe being installed on their system.


      3. A proper compile engine so that one way or
      another, people would hopefully be able to submit
      their JCL and get the output back from the safety
      of their Windows/Unix command prompt.


      Imagine being able to do MVS programming from
      anywhere in the world where you can find an
      internet browser.

      BFN. Paul.
