We are interested in the longevity of IDMS applications ... when did your c=
urrent IDMS apps go into production?

Are they old enough to drive? To vote? To go to a 20th reunion? To remem=
ber the 80s? What do they do?

And are you/they planning application retirement? 5 years or less, 5-10 ye=
ars, never, don't know?

Details are great and if you want to keep this under the radar just email m=

Thanks, Greg

Re: IDMS app age?
"Here's a list of Applications from about 4 years ago - probably not complete but covers major applications - most of the applications were developed in the 1990 to 1999 time frame - we are still developing new ADS applications, both green screen and front-ended by Java apps - sorry I couldn't locate a more complete list - there have been some interesting additions since this list was made -HTH - cheers - Gary
