ACUCOBOL-GT® | Open Systems COBOL Compiler and Runtime System
Imagine. COBOL interoperating with Java™ technology... running a .NET™ assembly… processing XML data…or providing a Web service. Imagine running COBOL from a mobile, handheld device. What would this kind of functionality mean to your business? For some, it might give a competitive edge, adding value to mission-critical applications. To others it might mean breathing new life into a languishing application. ACUCOBOL-GT offers all of these capabilities, and more.
ACUCOBOL-GT is an advanced COBOL development system for extending and modernizing business-critical COBOL applications. It is an extremely portable COBOL, supporting single-source, compile-once deployment on hundreds of platforms including most UNIX®, Linux®, Windows®, VMS, and MPE/iX systems. ACUCOBOL-GT includes extensive facilities for interoperating with C, Java, .NET, and XML. It supports connectivity to leading relational databases and ISAM data sources through both open and patented technologies. It is available for several distributed CICS environments, including IBM® TXSeries® for Multiplatforms and Sun® MTP/MBM. The core component of Acucorp’s family of extend® technologies, ACUCOBOL-GT supports thin client and multi-tier client/server architectures, as well as COBOL Web services, and platform independent graphical user interfaces. Flexible and scalable, ACUCOBOL-GT works anywhere in the enterprise, from back office to point-of-sale, handhelds to mainframes.
ACUCOBOL-GT is a multi-component COBOL development system that includes a compiler, the COBOL Virtual Machine™ (runtime), the Vision indexed file system, a source-level interactive debugger, and nearly a dozen support utilities. Source code compatibility options reduce or eliminate conversion effort when you are migrating from a proprietary system. Our graphical technology allows you to create a native graphical user interface with the Screen Section and familiar COBOL verbs like DISPLAY and ACCEPT. A large set of portable runtime routines supports common operations such as executing operating system functions, retrieving error codes, managing files, and managing memory. ACUCOBOL-GT offers extreme portability. With the COBOL Virtual Machine, your compiled applications can be moved from one platform to another without changes or recompilation.
