VX-REXX is a Visual Programming tool from Watcom that is completely integrated with the Workplace Shell and offers multiple views, drag-drop interaction, popup menus, settings notebooks, direct editing, all CUA '91 features and supports the OS/2 Font and Color palettes. The toolkit is now "Abandonware".
There is also a Client/Server edition, which implement functions to managing databases and networks (unfortunately available only in Demo).
It is hard to find today a regular license and unfortunately the ex software-house Watcom has never authorized using it as freeware.
