Hi Dale and folks:
First of all let me say Dale, your capacity to deliver new projects is awesome!

Not only does GemStone lack a native GUI, but the GLASS applications are running on machines in a server farm somewhere and native GUIs aren't very responsive over the WAN, whereas serving pages from a remote server can provide acceptable performance.
This is a great explanation. Lot of times I must explain myself (as a
freelancer working for customers around the world) why I select web
interfaces, this is the reason. Working with different datacenters,
mix of networks and servers need to have a fast way to interact with
them, and is the reason because the web is here.
engine that energize the web in our days, this was the main reason
becuase Diego GD developed the ST2JS  some years ago, to program
Javscript using Smalltalk. Unfortunately I had not more time, nor a
way to insert in a payed project to continue this development, but I'm
convinced that is a very very goof helper tool for Smalltalkers doing
(Smalltalk Web Toolkint), a tiny reference here:
