Upgrading from Server Express

You upgrade existing distributed applications created with Server Express to Visual COBOL for Eclipse.

The Visual COBOL suite includes the following two independent products that are designed to be used together for maximizing the developers' productivity:

  • Visual COBOL Development Hub is the counterpart of Server Express and must be installed on the machine that has your application sources.
  • Visual COBOL for Eclipse provides a rich and highly effective integrated development environment that can be connected to Visual COBOL Development Hub to enable you to edit, build and debug the applications' sources directly on the remote machine.

The following sections provide information on how to upgrade.
