 Windows 4GL on a digital Alpha

 Hi all.

Does anyone know of a 4GL package that is available to run on an Alpha
that will be running Open VMS as the OS. CA dont supply a 4GL package
for this architecture but do provide the DB. Our application must frontend
on the Alpha for political reasons. We will be upgrading from Ingres DB
6.4 and W4GL ver 6.3 (yes 6.3 is the correct version number!! a pre ver
1.0) this as you will understand is a very old configuration running on
DEC Vax's runing VMS ver 5.5 and  decwindows (pre motif). The envisaged
new architecture will be a mixed architecture of vax's and alpha's running
6.X maybe even 7.0 of VMS. The DB and front end are only one of many apps
running however the availability of a 4GL frontend is the only thing
holding up ( or should that be down:-) ) the upgrade.

The answer to my question may be obvious to you if so please share it with
me. I am not a DB specialist but rather a system manager who gets handed
the difficult to resolve problems. I hope to hear from you!.

If all you need is a character based interface you could always go with Ingres
ABF.  For a Decwindows / GUI front-end, I don't know.
