The Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) is used to develop, build, and debug COBOL applications, whether they are built as native or .NET COBOL. The IDE provides all the functionality to manage projects and debug applications. COBOL applications developed and built using previous Micro Focus IDEs, such as Net Express or Server Express, can now be developed and built with Visual COBOL. New and existing COBOL can be compiled as .NET COBOL codes.

To succeed in this course, you must be familiar with the Visual Studio IDE and have experience developing native COBOL applications and/or .NET COBOL code applications.
