only my 0.0001 cents but
?how many AS/400 REAL bussiness apllications are running in real word
developed with VA Cobol?
(also this question for Java)

i think is not the same Cobol that automatic C + Cobol created with
VA (a GUI environment).

Anybody remembering all these days where "the best" development tool
was SmallTolk? and SAA Cicle / Repository? and C++ in 400? (where is
real bussiness app runing in C++ in 400)

Note: i -as you?- believe that a real app is these with 100+
programs, not fewer PF/LF files, a lot of records and a lot of people
working together.... If any are thinking in "pretty nice GUI"
applications there is other point of view... 8-).
