COBOL and Windows

ACUCOBOL-GT® is a graphical COBOL language that is uniquely suited for graphical Windows environments. ACUCOBOL-GT not only supports all major Windows technologies, but it runs on most 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Windows operating system.

Component Object Model (COM), ActiveX®, and .NET are large enough subjects to warrant their own chapters. To learn how to leverage COM and ActiveX in your COBOL programs, see Using ActiveX Controls and COM Objects. To learn to interact with .NET assemblies, see Working With .NET Assemblies.
