How can businesses move safely and cost effectively from COBOL to an Object-Oriented language? And why is Java one of the most popular solutions for organizations relying on COBOL for their core legacy systems?
The white paper explores the key business drivers for making the step from COBOL to Java, and how our CodeTurn tool makes this transition possible. It explains the solution's added value over other approaches, and demystify the migration process.
There are many good reasons to make the move to Java from COBOL, but the following are the largest concerns for businesses today:
Java offers answers to all of the above concerns:
Next to that, moving to Java also means:
There are various solutions to migrate from COBOL to Java, but automated migration is the only realistic approach for large, legacy COBOL applications. Here are some of the solution's main benefits:
Since all code is translated by software, there can be no differences in quality and all existing functionality is kept as-is.
A complete code base can be converted in a couple of hours, meaning that this process can be repeated as often as needed or wanted.
When keeping the converted application’s functionality unchanged, the original application’s behavior can effectively be used as a regression test (and running this regression test, too, can be automated).
Existing developers and IT department can keep working on their daily tasks, including the ongoing maintenance of the COBOL code.
