  • Developers get the power of Eclipse on their Windows or Linux desktop Can test their applications in a realistic environment without duplicating source code or emulating server behavior.Faster on-boarding. Maintain source code and build processes on a central server with access to the target platform databases and other services.Avoid complex emulation processes to develop locally on the programmer’s desktop before publishing to the UNIX or Linux server.Fully integrated local COBOL development environment delivers high programmer productivity by exploiting Eclipse tools and providing instant feedback of syntax errors while editing.Can be used for local development using the command line compiler and character mode Animator.
  • Preserves optimization and accuracyFastest route to .NET/JVM
  • 1. Choose your toolset2. Build on the command line, can still debug in the IDE3. compile, edit, debug in the IDEs – Darren and PaulaBring new talent into the organizationInvolve other developers in COBOL4. Modernize the UI, .NET, JVM or ES SOA5. Cloud and Mobile
