The ATERAS® COBOL modernization solution generates fully web-based applications to replace current CICS, IMS-DC and IDMS-DC COBOL applications. Whether you modernize COBOL to .NET or COBOL to Java, the result is a fresh set of new web applications that take full advantage of web processing while providing the same basic functionality as the existing COBOL applications. With our tool-based modernization of COBOL to C# or Java, any former database or file access is replaced with object processing against the relational database of your choice, with the database design of your choice.
The ATERAS COBOL modernization results in fully object-oriented web-based applications. After the project is complete, the new C# and Java applications are maintained in Visual Studio, Eclipse or any other standard IDE that you may choose. The new relational database can be from an ATERAS database conversion (IDMS, Adabas, IMS or VSAM), a purchased relational database, or a relational database that you design from scratch. The new application is native to Java or .NET, has a very small code footprint (like COBOL), and can include buttons, pull-downs, hyperlinks, gridviews and other web features. The new data access methods are easily used "as a service" by other applications.
ATERAS can provide the COBOL modernization as a service, or your teams can use the eavRPM® tool suite to perform the modernization in your own timeframe, implementing your own standards, and following your own specifications for look and feel in the new .NET and Java applications.
If your plans include a like-for-like conversion of your existing COBOL applications to another COBOL dialect, see our COBOL conversion solution.
