thanks everyone for some initial input.

as expected, there was much good and bad expressed about both. Learning
its' syntax is not a worry since I have strong c, c++ background.

Our app. is very mature(enterprise consisting of 14 modules - so tons of
windows and children controls pulling from the DB; all nested on top of
some nice "third party" Treeview window(left) and tab control
window(right) Can you say GenericObject? Robot can. So the GUI mapping
issue might be a pre-mature worry on my mind.

At least after dealing with Rational, this second go round includes
contract that stipulates No pay until it is fully in place and working.
thanks again to all.
