NetCOBOL is an open platform COBOL development environment which takes advantage of the rich features of the COBOL and is ready for the latest technology and a state-of-the-art environment. Important benefits of NetCOBOL are:
Persistent COBOL resources that can be used securely for a long period
NetCOBOL complies with International Standard, industry standard specifications, and ordinary standard specifications, which enables stable operation and expansion of key system for the future. Existing COBOL properties and skills and know-how of mainframes and small business computers can be fully utilized.
Providing COBOL Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that conforms to your platform
"NetCOBOL Studio," a COBOL development environment based on Eclipse which is an open-source integrated development environment, has been built into NetCOBOL for Windows, and Microsoft "Visual Studio" has been built into NetCOBOL for .NET as a development environment for .NET Framework.
Enabling highly efficient and productive program development
COBOL Integrated Development Environment (IDE) allows improvement of efficiency of the whole development process including design, programming, testing, and maintenance. It enables program development linking with the latest technologies from batch to Web applications.
Enhancing the value of Business-Critical and Mission-Critical Systems
The range of application of key system can be expanded and developed by linking with the latest technologies such as .NET, Java, and XML.
Enabling quicker data tabulation and analysis by combining NetCOBOL with RDBs
Introducing "PowerBSORT" speeds up sorting and merging data, improving the performance of the key system.
