Routemap?  Not sure what you mean by that.

This is true

This is true.

They are similar once compiled.  One issue is that the SQLTransformer
uses at least two connections--not only one.  The ESQL logicsheet is
more powerful, and isn't that complicated to use once you get the knack
for it.

Not sure on that one.  The SQLTransformer was done as a quick port to have
some functionality.  ESQL has been much more thoroughly tested, and is clearly
where our future efforts are going to lie.
