If this wasn't a smart thing to be doing (e.g. if we weren't making money from it) then we wouldn't still be around!

I've worked at a number of places where they attempted to migrate from pro-iv to a-nother system only to find out that they would then be faced with a considerable time difference in developing the software.

We've business app(s) made up of approx 2000 functions, 500+ tables
This app has evolved (lots of good design) over 12 calendar years (probably 100+ man yrs development) and has been deployed on IBM Mainframe, Unix, Windows, ISAM, ORACLE etc.,
Our Users are happy - but If I went to them tomorrow and said some ANONYMOUS forum poster says I'm scared/fearful (of what ?) and should rewrite the App(s), willl you please fund this - I sort of guess what their replies might be ?
We also have some Java/J2EE apps they are also very good
At the end of the day Pro-IV & Java are tools and its knoledge of the tools and good design that makes good apps
