COBOL applications are often monolithic and challenging for many developers to maintain and modernize. Re-use and re-purpose COBOL programs with NEW re-factoring tools for Visual COBOL. Developers can now turn tightly coupled code into reusable components based on proven value. Quickly, isolate and extract COBOL business functions to develop automated unit tests or expose as APIs using inbuilt REST web services framework.
Visual COBOL enables developers to easily build, test and deploy COBOL programs to any platform of choice including .Net, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Linux, Docker Containers, and the Cloud. Take advantage of new capabilities and instantly scale COBOL development and testing using Docker Containers. Manage and orchestrate your container infrastructure with NEW Kubernetes support. Build scalable, reliable applications on premise or in the cloud using Visual COBOL’s container and orchestration support just like this major financial software vendor did.
