JDE World served me quite well for 6 years of Consulting in the UK and
Europe, but as Andy says, it is legacy code and it is
counter-productive to try to utilise ILE functionality.  Since moving
to the States and working in an environment with only home-grown
software, I have been able to learn and use ILE techniques.

Now, if they'd only move to V5R1, I'd be quite happy with life!!

On the subject of Consulting (I am currently in permanent employment
since moving Stateside), are there companies out there who accept or
encourage tele-commuting, or is management attitude still focussed
around having bodies on site?

Regards

Chris
