Seamlessly connect COBOL applications to relational database management systems.
Micro Focus Database Connectors™ are designed to simplify the transition from traditional COBOL data files to relational database management systems. Manually modifying COBOL source code to use SQL syntax is both time consuming and complex. Database Connectors solve this challenge by automatically translating the existing data file syntax within COBOL source code, into SQL instructions operating against a modern relational database.
Database Connectors enable seamless translation of COBOL file I/O statements to SQL instructions operating against a modern relational database management system. Database Connectors support Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, and other RDBMS platforms.
Database Connectors use low-level RDBMS APIs to achieve the best application performance. Where application data storage has moved from local data files to a networked RDBMS, applications may expect to see a small reduction in I-O performance. Such overheads can be addressed by updating performance critical sections of code to reduce access times.
Database Connectors improve application resiliency and recovery by leveraging the inherent benefits of RDBMS. Deliver higher levels of reliability, availability, and scalability to your COBOL applications. Increase business continuity and accelerate data recovery during system failure.
RDBMS support is essential when we are bidding for new business. Database Connectors gave us the easiest route to achieve RDBMS integration without having to spend years and years rewriting everything.
