Microsoft Visual Studio Code extension

isCOBOL Evolve 2023R1 introduces a new extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code, a powerful and extensible code editor that is extremely popular for the number of available extensions that let you customize it for your needs.
Veryant isCOBOL Extension for Visual Studio Code allows COBOL developers to create and manage isCOBOL projects, edit sources, and run and debug isCOBOL programs.
When compiled in debug mode, the VS code debugger can be used to debug isCOBOL programs, supporting common debugging features such as stepping in code, setting breakpoints, evaluating variables and setting watches and monitors.

WebClient Test Tool

With Test Tool you can interactively create test cases for your isCOBOL character or graphical application running in WebClient. Test Tool is a web application that lets you record a test case, consisting of a series of mouse clicks and keyboard events a user performs when running an isCOBOL application, then set assertions on expected results and later playing back the events and checking that the application still works as intended. Multiple tests can be automated using Selenium Grid.

C-Tree Replication Manager

The current C-Tree v3.0.2 release supports a new product called Replication Manager. It is a web GUI tool you can use to easily configure replication between different c-tree servers. It can also be used to monitor the replication status. The Replication Manager, also known as Memphis, can be installed on the same server as c-tree server or on a different server. Memphis automatically detects the c-tree servers running that are configured to be managed by the replication manager.

Release enhancements

As with every release, the isCOBOL Compiler has been upgraded to enhance compatibility with other COBOL dialects and ESQL pre-compilers.
The isCOBOL runtime 2023 R1 includes a new file handler named VisionJ to access Vision files without the need for native code. The new file handler is also integrated in all Veryant products, including the isCOBOL File Server and isCOBOL UDBC driver as well as isCOBOL utilities such as GIFE and ISMIGRATE.
New routine libraries have been implemented and GUI controls have been improved to let developers provide better solutions to customers.

Details on these and additional features can be found in the isCOBOL Evolve 2023 Release 1 Overview
