EGL Rich UI - The Next Generation

No, seriously, what I mean is this is the next generation of posts on the RUI topic. A month ago I wrote that some exciting stuff was in the works, and now I can tell you about it. This will actually be a short blog entry - I just want to let you know what's coming.
Briefly, I'm writing a book. The book is going to be about using RDi SOA to build EGL Rich UI applications with the i. EGL Rich UI is the "formal" term for RUI, and if you haven't played with it yet, you should get yourself down to the alphaWorks site and get a copy (and yes I know the page says EGL Rich Web Support, but I have it on good authority that EGL Rich UI is the official name).
The book will show how to build a Rich UI interface using EGL and then connect that to a business logic back end written in RPG. Every step of the way will be written and debugged using Rational tooling.
And those of you who read my blog will get an inside look into the process of writing a book. It may inspire some of you to try your own hand at it. Those of you with clearer heads will run screaming...
Anyway, that's the short version. This ought to be an interesting project...
