Download the isCOBOL Evolve 2017 Release 2 Overview
isCOBOL IDE improvements
This release of isCOBOL Evolve allows developers to set a different isCOBOL compiler version to use while compiling and testing for each of the workspace projects.
The "Set Filter" feature can now be used to show programs that have compilation errors, an extremely useful feature for very large projects.
Custom templates can be created and used when creating new screen or report programs.
Database Bridge improvements
The isCOBOL Database Bridge feature has been rewritten in Java, has been integrated in the isCOBOL compiler, and is available for all suported platforms.
It's now a one-step process, and all files are generated at compile time, with no need for external utilities.
New User Interface features
MDI (Multiple Document Interface) windows are now supported to enhance COBOL application GUIs.
Menus and pop-up menus with many items can now be scrolled for easier navigation of complex applications.
XML and JSON streams handling has been improved, and compatibility with other COBOLs has been enhanced.
The C$COPY library routine is now more optimized and performance has been vastly improved.
New library routines have been added to provide higher compatibility with other COBOL dialects, such as MicroFocus®, RM/COBOL® and ACUCOBOL-GT®
Application Server improvements
Basic mirroring capabilities have been added to isCOBOL Application Server, to allow transparent client redirection when a server is not available.
isCOBOL Thin Client has been enhanced to allow multiple IP and ports to be specified in the command line, allowing the client to connect to the first available of multiple servers.
isCOBOL Thin Client can now more easily execute all the framework utilities.
isCOBOL EIS has been enhanced with an improved REST Web Service Bridge generation, and webDirect has new features for grids and new routines.
A single REST web service program can now manage both XML and JSON requests and responses, instead of needing two separate bridges. The correct request and response formats are automatically detected by checking the Content-Type header of the request.
Grids in webDirect now have a pagination capability, web style.
