Enterprise application development tools

By guru ·

I am interested to find out what type of development tools are used by enterprise application development vendors to make the application work with different databases. Native code for the database would be the stored procedures to get the best performance with most databases. We can argue that it is not possible to get the kind of performance that you get out of stored procedures using conventional languages like Cobol or C or VB. However stored procedures are native to the database andrequire maintenance of different code base for each database separately even if you use ANSI set. Would appreciate if some one can throw some light on this issue.
I have seen Lawson software using CASE tool (COBOL based), JD Edwards using C for their development. My question is
1. "Is it possible to write an enterprise application that handles huge amount of data with conventional languages instead of using database procedures".
2. Need some examples to prove the point.
