An introduction to the process of upgrading your COBOL applications

The following topics show you the process of moving existing Net Express applications into Visual COBOL for Visual Studio. This information assumes one of the following starting points:
  • You currently use Net Express just for debugging, and edit files and compile projects by other means (START 1)
  • You currently use Net Express for all your development tasks (START 2)
  • You currently use Net Express for .NET in Visual Studio 2008 (START 3)

The steps to move to Visual COBOL are illustrated below:

After following this process you will be able to use the Visual COBOL for Visual Studio features to improve development and modernize your applications.
