There are a number of packages. Two of the best I've seen are:

Uniface		This is a good product that also has the benefit of working
		with almost any database, Windows, X (Motif and OpenLook),
		Unix, VMS (yuck :-), Client/Server from Windows to Unix or
		VMS.
PowerBuilder	A good product that only works in the Windows environment
		either with local DBs or Client/Server.
	

Some others include (passed on without comment): Unify
Focus
Ally
JAM
SQL*Windows

If you are working in an environment of heterogenous presentation devices or with multiple databases (especially in one application), I think Uniface would be the best product.
