You can use our Windows-based integrated development environment (IDE), AcuBench, to develop new COBOL applications for your HP e3000 systems or to enhance your existing COBOL applications. AcuBench is particularly helpful in developing new graphical user interfaces (GUI) for existing applications.

AcuBench is a Windows-based tool. To enhance existing HP e3000 applications, you may need to use some additional tools in conjunction with AcuBench to ensure that all libraries and data files are in formats that AcuBench can handle and to allow your Windows systems and your HP e3000 systems to pass files to each other as required.

This section outlines the use of AcuBench to develop HP e3000 applications. Please contact your Micro Focus extend Systems Engineering representative for additional information and assistance.
