Subject: Java and ActiveX


I'm sure most of us are aware of the Java "vs." Active X debate. Many of
us are already having to decide between NetHelp and HTMLHelp. The emphasis
on the web as a software (and help) distribution medium will only
increase.
I've recently done some research on these technologies and have discovered
the following sites. I urge everyone to arm yourselves with technical
facts about these "competing" technologies and especially about security
issues. Let us not be swept away by popular opinion or marketing might!
:-)

If these articles/sites aren't of interest to you personally, you might be
able to pass them along to the appropriate tech teams in your org. I'm
sure web software development is a hot issue in many companies. Enjoy!
