Could you attached and small example of the two programs you mentioned above?

I've been researching various methods used in COBOL user inerfaces. Many
companies running COBOL are still using character mode I/O. I've come
across a good windows GUI solution for COBOL, by purchasing a product call
COBOL SP2, it runs on Windows, and many other platforms using a Windows
Thin Client.

I still have NOT found a good GUI solution that is completely Windows

I've looked at Tcl/Tk, Java, and XUL, but never figured out how to call
them from COBOL..

Thanks in Advance,
