There is a tendency to leave NATURAL-ADABAS and going toward COBOL-DB2. The reason is mainly financial.

Personally, NATURAL-ADABAS is my "first love". I still believe that they are among the best development infractructure ever existed, and that they were designed from a programmer point-of-view. I still think that ADABAS is the closest database to the definition of "prefect". From time to time I still play with NATURAL and ADABAS, just to remember the good old days. However, it is proven that more and more companies are moving to DB2. icon_mad.gif

Hi Priya,

As far as future prospects are concerned COBOL/DB2 is ahead of NATURAL-ADABS.......I would say Cobol/DB2 has better prospects than PL1/IMS......although I love IMS(DB)

I guess I am not exaggerating :-)

Thanks,
Neelesh
