Good one, technology changes, people not so much. They still hate writing documentation. My web apps have been running on AWS for 3 years now with GWT and Groovy Grails YUI and I am pushing all my SMEs here to do so. What's on your side? Is UWA on the cloud yet or are you somewhere else?
My fantasy: all my apps running P2P (with JXTA) and no Hibernate.

That was 30 years ago. Technology changes and so do people. 


Embrace it or get left behind in your own fantasy J

  Quick summary of what the "cloud" is, not too
  Basically the same old stuff we were doing 30 years ago
  with a big central server and green terminals, but this time with the
  internet in the middle and lots of HTML cr*p and megabytes of badly written
  Javascript for most of it, trying to replace the horrible ESC sequences for
  VT100. That makes all the ozzie ISPs happy, since their meters go ding-ding! 
  Sorry... ;)
