Hi Mat,

1) wEMBOSS is written in Perl while jEMBOSS is in Java.
2) wEMBOSS works from the browser (tested with IE 6 & Netscape 7) while jEMBOSS 
does not need a browser.
3) jEMBOSS needs extra installation (Jakarta & Java WebStart), nearly everything 
wEMBOSS needs comes in a regular Linux (except some Perl modules).
4) At this point, wEMBOSS is faster than jEMBOSS, but this is because of actual 
5) jEMBOSS has (not sure) batch capabilities, wEMBOSS not yet.
6) jEMBOSS has a file browser (for local & server files), wEMBOSS not yet.
7) Both jEMBOSS and wEMBOSS have a private workspace for each user.

Hope this helps.

We are wanting a web interface here, and most people had pointed me to JEMBOSS, but this seems like a new entry to the field?  I didn't post this to the whole list, but they might be interested in the reply, but I wanted to leave that up to you.
