Unfortunately after all this time searching I did not manage to find something cool, easy and RAD like Powerbuilder.
In Powerbuilder you can design and run a form/window either DBMS related or not in less than 10min. And it will actually do something useful, insert,update,delete your data. (Datawindow ROCKS!!!)
A report with groups,simple grid or even crosstab can also be designed in minutes.
Filesystem access, e-mail functionality, pdf printing, event handling,reference to controls/objects, data management,reporting are as easy and quick as 1-2-3. The help file is by far the best I've ever seen, with real world useful examples and not quick and dirty references.
The project structure is workable, you don't have to look in neverending header files or wondering what library you have to import to get needed functionality.
In general you don't have to code until you drop in order to write a nice looking real world application that will solve a company's problem very quickly.
That's what I am looking for Linux......and probably won't find soon.
Hey you guys at Sybase, please please please give us PB for Linux.
