Visual COBOL provides the most modern integrated COBOL application development environment in the industry. It combines the leading development environments (Eclipse and/or Visual Studio) with the most significant COBOL update of the last decade. Visual COBOL delivers the power to build and develop mission-critical applications on the business platform that makes most business sense for any enterprise.
Future proof business-critical applications
Visual COBOL makes it possible to create and continue to develop enterprise class business-critical applications that run on the widest range of platforms. This means that existing applications can be deployed onto new platforms, including .NET, JVM and the cloud, maintaining and extending existing investments, as well as presenting new market opportunities.
Increase developer productivity
Visual COBOL’s integration capability with Eclipse significantly increases developer productivity by exploiting Eclipse tools, improving time-to-market for new products and capabilities.
Protect existing investment and intellectual property
Existing COBOL applications have extensive business logic built into them, which contains valuable competitive advantage. Being able to use these applications in new environments for decades to come ensures that both investment and market opportunity are maximized.
Applications developed in Visual COBOL are deployed on the COBOL Server deployment environment.
