 >> if so what are the likely timescales on this?

It should coincide with hell freezing over.  RPG like COBOL will be around for a
very long time yet (certainly long enough for most of us to retire).  This is
not to say that Java is not important - it is - but until it can do complex
functions like printing <bg> it will have a problem replcing all your RPG code.
