Howdy All - I am just wondering if anyone has successfully converted a *massive* (subjectivity implied) COBOL application to another language. If so, into which language was your system converted and when was this done? What were the potholes you, no doubt, hit? Was the conversion far more expensive than anticipated? What hidden costs were exposed? Was there a performance gain/loss in the new language? Did anyone convert from COBOL to PL/SQL? to T-SQL? to Java? to C#.NET? Thanks, and have a great day!

The data will be gradually built when the user scroll down the grid. On the other hands, in sql server. I do not know whether this trick is possible. So it is trying to load all 40000 rows before show it …
