Given that the conservative nature of Corporate thinking does not allow you to try the new features of RPGLE (XML, internet enabling APIs, etc.) How do you convince them that RPGLE is not a legacy system dinosaur that can't compete with JAVA (or .NET, etc.)

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If this were pitched to me, my questions would be:

1) What are we doing with RPGLE?
2) Is RPGLE in our set of standards?
3) Show me these new features and how they work.

    When management recieves answers posed by Bikecommutr I would then explain the history of RPG. The strength of performing critical business requirements. How it continually grows to match todays computing needs. And, the wealth of 3rd party software available. Jack
