 Delphi vs. Powerbuilder??? Hlp Quick Please

Hi,

We need to develop a system on a Windows platform. In terms of size, we figure
about 5-6 man months, 20-30,lines of code. Nothing complicated, mostley table
setup (approx. 60 tables)  and calculations, some interfacing to external
systems.

Our choice would be to use Delphi, given its range of third party supporting
products etc. but out client is of the opinion, Powerbuilder is the tool to
use. Client connection will be via ODBC to Sybase and DB2.

I know Delphi reasonably well; the only thing I know about Powerbuilder is
that it is interpreted code and Delphi 16 is about 200 times faster. I
understand that it's great for prototyping or writing small systems (Address
book, etc). I've heard it's kind of a dbase-for-windows thing (or similar to
Access and Foxpro), but how about using it for a system that may take up
20-30,000 lines of code?

Thanks for any comments,

Roland

I've just finished a database program that was 30,000 lines of code.
Although I just used local database machinery. No ODBC or third party
RDBMS so I can't comment about that but for what I did it worked well.
