Managed COBOL is the collective term for .NET COBOL and JVM COBOL. Managed COBOL is regular procedural COBOL with extensions to take advantage of the features of the managed frameworks. This includes object-oriented (OO) syntax that allows access to large libraries of functionality you can use in your application, and much more. To take full advantage of Managed COBOL, it is helpful to understand the object-oriented concepts.
