About Black Dirt:
In 1996, converting Visual Basic forms into Java seemed like a good idea.
I spent as much time making new components as I did doing the actual converting
Visual Basic. I had some good ideas - particular in using dynamic extention so that
custom VB controls could be converted. There was a mention in
and PC Magazine and a review in a JavaPro magazine. I think I said at that time that "the application is the tool."
Press release July 1997
