Hi,

Can anyone give me some details about natural and adabas? What they are and whether these are one of the programming languages in Mainframe? Please provide me some inputs.

NATURAL is a 4th-generation interpreted programming language, as well as a handy development environment.

ADABAS is semi-hierarchical database (from my experience - it is the best database I ever worked with). You can access ADABAS from any programming language.

You can read more about it in Software AG's web site.

If you have specific questions, please ask.

O.

When you start google-ing beware: there are 2 versions of adabas:
- adabas-c (they don't like it when you refer as Classic)
- adabas-d

On the mainframe we are talking about adabas-c. As ofer71 says: the best there is.

Adabas-d you'll find on unix/linux/windows. This database has had a lot of versions/names: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MaxDB
