Release highlights

After years of important successes with Web Direct, Veryant's technology that enables the deployment of fully interactive COBOL programs to the Web, Veryant, the COBOL technology innovator, offers a new release of COBOL for the Web, fully integrated in the isCOBOL EIS suite.
Interactive COBOL applications can be used from any device, from desktops to tablets, all the way to smartphones. This new version brings improved performance of the main core, better CSS style management for interface controls, and support for Bootstrap styling on all GUI controls and Font Awesome icons for push buttons.

But that's not all! isCOBOL Evolve suite provides new features on all its components. For example, isUpdater is a new feature used to automatically keep installed software updated. Also new is the native support for Android SDK, to easily generates mobile COBOL-based application. HTML reports capability has been improved, supporting Microsoft Excel format for exported reports; new control styles like accordion, border-color and placeholder can now be used for cleaner and more modern user interfaces. Our world famous COBOL debugger is even more comprehensive, automatically showing statement's variables values during execution.

Once again, Veryant engineers squeezed performance gains on many common statements, to achieve faster performance on the entire COBOL application compared to previous versions.

EasyLinkage is a new feature that makes calling isCOBOL programs from Java easier than ever. By setting a property value, the isCOBOL compiler will generate a Java class wrapping the linkage section, providing getters and setters for COBOL variables, and will generate methods to run legacy programs or entry points. Just include the Java class source code in your Java project and you're good to go.

isCOBOL EIS Web Direct, the technology that makes COBOL screen section based applications run on the browser, has been improved to provide much better performance, and now provides finer control over user interface. Bootstrap styling can now be used, as well as Font Awesome icons, to provide apps with more modern and stylish user interfaces.
See what isCOBOL EIS Web Direct can do for you!
