Managed COBOL can invoke and be invoked by code in any other managed language. Managed COBOL can also invoke native COBOL. In addition, managed code in languages other than COBOL and native COBOL can interoperate by going through managed COBOL code.
Data Marshaling and Type Conversion for Managed Code Interoperation
Data type compatibility is one of the main issues when managed COBOL interoperates with code in non-COBOL managed languages. Often, you need to manipulate the COBOL data into compatible types.
