Many of today’s applications that were developed in COBOL are still mission-critical and continue to deliver significant benefits to the organizations that use and rely upon them. Nevertheless, many organizations are faced with issues of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), skills shortage, or end of support. Astadia’s service provides an opportunity to liberate these valuable and reliable business systems from their dependency on legacy technology and converts them to Object-Oriented languages such as Java or C#.
Astadia will take any application developed in COBOL and automatically transform it to a functionally identical one, ready to run on any platform supporting the JVM. Since both the conversion and the testing is fully automated, the outcome of the project is fully predictable, in terms of risks, costs, and duration.
All Astadia transformation solutions ensure three types of equivalence:
Functional equivalence: the converted application’s behavior is identical to that of the original one
Performance equivalence: the converted application will perform as well as the original one
Maintenance equivalence: maintenance of the converted application will be comparable in effort to the original application.
There are many good reasons to move from COBOL to Java. These are typically the major concerns for businesses:
Java offers answers to all these concerns:
Next to that, a COBOL to Java transformation also means:
Astadia uses its own specialized tools to automate the conversion of COBOL sources to Java, guaranteeing code quality, avoiding risks, and offering full predictability by 100% automation. The architecture of the COBOL to Java converter contains:
