What are the key differences between Natural and NaturalONE?

Natural is a standalone programming language that runs on major platforms (Mainframe, Linux, UNIX and Windows) and includes proprietary editors for creation of programs, subprograms, data areas, character-based maps and other programmatic objects. NaturalONE is a high-productivity integrated development environment (IDE) based on open-source Eclipse that lets developers code and test applications (using the Natural language), expose Natural objects as Web services, and create rich Web interfaces. In this way NaturalONE lets the developer produce systems that not only support enterprise SOA and BPM, but also appeal to business users outside the IT group.
