Hello,

You might check with the vendors of those products to see what they have that compares "their" product to others.

As a migrant data worker (traveling consultant), i've worked with all of them and they all seem to get the job done. Depending on your personal preferences and/or special requirements, you might like one better than another. I don't know if this is still true, but once upon a time, you could get an evaluation copy for trial use.

Thank you.
Rumba Emulator seems to be costly as per my understanding .PCOM is used widely in all mainframe areas and even Attachmate.Which one you would suggest will be best? PCOM or Attachmate?

To be more clear, I am looking for a emulator to replace Rumba.It should be PCOM or Attachmate EXTRAXTREME,which one would be better.Beleive both the emulators provide similar functionality as Rumba.Correct me if I am wrong,this is for business use.

Yes, they do.

That completely depends on you or your organization. Which is better - red or blue? Which is better - tea of coffee?
