Additional support and integration points will be provided with each incremental release of the Studio Enterprise Edition for UNIX and Server Enterprise Edition products. If you would like to learn more details about what support will be available in the future and participate in the relevant Early Adopter program, please, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Shared Filehandling between Micro Focus COBOL and Open PL/I - Open PL/I enables you to use the same filehandler as used by the Micro Focus COBOL products. It's primary advantage is that it provides support for Indexed files and the ability to execute PL/I programs under the control of Enterprise Server JCL.
- DB2 UDB Precompiler - A DB2 UDB Precompiler is now available on all platforms for Open PL/I. This feature allows you to migrate applications which contain EXEC SQL logic.
- Enhanced support for the PLISRTx routines to now support data types of ZD, PD, FI, BI, and FL.
- Improved support for large PL/I programs.
