[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Question about java

Hi Amanda,

A more serious response - have you asked them if they have read the README and other basic documentation for administrators? It is available here:

https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/blob/master/README.md <https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/blob/master/README.md>

Is it possible that they are incorrectly assuming that ArchivesSpace is a Java applet for the browser? 

If they still insist that it is a security problem, I would insist that they be more explicit about what their concerns are.

Does AS have any plans to move away from java at any point?
