File System Flexibility

ACUCOBOL-GT also includes a generic architecture for connecting to file systems. This means that developers can choose from a variety of file systems and database management systems, as shown in the following diagram:


On all platforms except VMS and OpenVMS, ACUCOBOL-GT is shipped with the powerful, performance optimized Vision indexed filey system. On VMS and OpenVMS systems, ACUCOBOL-GT uses the native RMS file system. On the HP e3000 platform, in additin to Vision, ACUCOBOL-GT interfaces with MPE/KSAM files.

extend's interfaces to other file systems are licensed separately.
