Java 21 LTS support

isCOBOL Evolve and isCOBOL SDK 2024R1 are certified for Java 21, the current Java LTS (Long Term Support) release.
Longterm support extends the period of software maintenance; it also alters the type and frequency of software updates (patches) to reduce the risk, expense, and disruption of software deployment, while promoting the dependability of the software.


The isCOBOL IDE 2024 R1 is now based on Eclipse 2023-09 (4.29), which includes full support for Java 21.
The new version offers many improvements in performance, stability and usability on a day-by-day usage. The installers include an embedded JRE for the IDE, thus requiring no additional downloads from the developer.

Jakarta support

isCOBOL 2024 R1 adds support Jakarta in all our products that run in a web environment, such isCOBOL WebClient, isCOBOL EIS Servlets, WebServices and WebDirect.

Other features

isCOBOL compiler can now generate SQLJ code instead of standard JDBC Api on Oracle and DB2 databases, providing better performance for static SQL queries.
The compiler supports inline variable declaration and improves auto-boxing in Object Oriented Programming, which allows mixing Java and primitive types with COBOL variables in the same statement.
The Grid control has received updates and now allows new color customizations, and controls that accept data input can now specify a regular expression to filter what users can type.

Details on these and additional features can be found in the isCOBOL Evolve 2024 Release 1 Overview
