With Java, as long as you have a Java interface declared, you can at least dispense with the stubs by using a Proxy. The Proxy stuff in Java rocks my world. I used it to define my own RMI-like protocol, for example. But it's a shame I can't use Java reflection to dynamically *make* an interface, I have to write out Java source then compile it then put it in the classpath then Class.forName () it to do that. A bit clunky. I could probably learn the format of bytecode and write a class that directly generates the bytecode in a byte array and uses the classloader to turn that into a class, but it'd be nice if it was just there because then I could dynamically generate interfaces. However, only code that used reflection to call methods could actually use those interfaces since any other code would need to have been compiled against the interface. But then again that does kind of make sense. ABS -- A city is like a large, complex, rabbit - ARP
