Was* king. The only reason it is still around is because the people that manage the dev's at places that run Big-Iron mainframes were once COBOL programmers and aren't comfortable with newer technologies. When those old programmers fall out of circulation (retirement, etc.), say good bye to those systems.

With server-client technology becoming the new thing more modern object-oriented languages are being put to use, of course COBOL did get object-orientation but it is CRAP!
