And as long as MCRev web applications servers have been my best  
incomes sources betwin 1997 and 200x, i just can add that Rev is,  
before J2SE or PHP and behind Ruby on Rails, a real firstclass web  
apps development platform. RoR is probably before Rev in about the  
apps deployment framework and Rev is probably lots before RoR about  
the development langage it self, at least in my humble mind because  
the transcript xtalk structure, because the rev engine, both more  
polished and able to let us design our web apps in less time than in  
building them in Ruby coding.
