Taking interoperability to the next level
isCOBOL Evolve Suite offers many tools and features to enhance and extend your applications, allowing you to integrate code with components regardless of their language, platform, network or database.
You can combine Veryant’s technologies in a number of ways to solve your business requests, while protecting your valuable investment in COBOL applications.
With the capabilities to exchange data via a common set of formats, to read and write the same file formats, and to use the same protocols, isCOBOL Evolve moves the concept of interoperability to the next level.
Today, the lack of interoperability can be the result of insufficient attention to standardization during the design of a program. Indeed, interoperability is not taken for granted in the non-standards-based portion of the computing world.
With the interoperability provided by isCOBOL Evolve suite, you application can be considered a First-Class Citizen in the IT World; the only limit to your impact is your imagination.
As no other COBOL dialect, isCOBOL Evolve Suite provides a wide range of features, from the development of an application to its deployment, which allows you to enable your COBOL programs to interoperate with all kinds of applications and languages; by taking advantage of the development capabilities like the Java Translation, Object-Oriented Programming, Regular Expressions and so on. Additionally, supporting the ANSI-85 through ANSI-2002 syntax allows isCOBOL Evolve to offer a high compatibility with ACUCOBOL-GT®, MICRO FOCUS®, RM/COBOL®, as well as other COBOLs.
Moreover, by using the Eclipse IDE, Java Integration, Internationalization, C/C++ Integration, etc, the deployment of any application has several approaches such as a Fat or Thin Client, J2EE, Web Start or Mobile, providing User Interface capabilities supporting either GUI Screen Section, ACCEPT/DISPLAY, HTML5/CSS3, Charva, Ncurses, etc, as well as embedding videos, images I/O, sound, etc.
To help you integrate with the outside world, isCOBOL Evolve provides support for several communication protocols and formats, including JSON, XML, Wsdl, Sockets, DualRPC, CORBA and, of course, HTTP.
isCOBOL Evolve allows strong data integration by supporting ISAM, SQL ODBC and JDBC drivers, allowing applications to interact with all the major RDBMS brands as Oracle®, SQL Server®, DB2®, DBMaker, c-treeRTG, MySQL®, and the list goes on and on.
