In all the sites that I go to, I would say it is 90% RPG, 9% Cobol, and 1%
everything else (C, Java, or anything else).  I think that IBM would like us to
believe that more people are using Java, I think more and more people are
starting to "play" with Java. There are sites that have more than one compiler,
but what I am talking about is the most used language or they one they rely on 
to
run their systems.  I would also add, that most choices in shops that purchase
software, is the ERP vendors language.
