So let's see here ... the last time I blogged was December of last year. That was a looooong eight months ago, folks. But now I really am back. The new book is in production with a release date of November 1st. It took a lot more effort than I'd expected, mostly because I didn't even know what "EGL Rich UI" was when I first envisioned the book.
No matter; the book is very cool and provides a complete in-depth guide - with source code! - to building multi-tiered applications using the IBM i as the business logic server (although technically speaking you can use anything as a service provider - that's part of the beauty of SOA).
So now with the book out of my hands (and hopefully into yours!), I'm starting a new project. This one is much better suited to blogging, and I'll post about that in my next blog entry.[Read More]

When you learn, you want to know how one subject is related to another. Our new book, Enterprise Web 2.0 with EGL, puts EGL in its place:
The Place of EGL in Business
We show that EGL lets you write code at less expense and in a way that enables a competitive advantage. We describe two technologies that have business implication: Web 2.0 and service-oriented architecture. Also, we give you an insight into the economics of social computing.
The Place of EGL in History
We present EGL as part of the trend to greater power per language statement, from machine code to assembly language to third-generation languages to an "enterprise language."
The Place of EGL in Secure Computing
We give an illustrated overview of Web security, with details on EGL. This stuff is interesting!
The Place of EGL in the Runtime Environment
We show how EGL-generated code -- user interfaces, services, and programs -- fits into the runtime environment and makes modernization easier than ever.
The Place of EGL in Day-to-Day Development
We offer a detailed overview of the language, including a practical look at our newest technology, Rich UI. Please note that some of this material was first published in IBM Rational Business Developer with EGL, which is replaced with the current work.
Our EGL book is growing, and we'd like it to be as useful as the language. You can help by reading the book, logging on to the EGL Cafe, and adding a comment to this post.
