June 5, 2009 - PRLog -- As in certain commercial Mainframe solutions found in the market, but often at a dissuasive price, the Cobos Project enables developers to work locally: the required source files (Cobol, CICS, DB2) are downloaded on Eclipse then reloaded on the mainframe following the intervention of the developer, who can work totally autonomously on an economical workstation.

Metrixware, editor of software solutions dedicated to regaining knowledge, to managing and valorizing application assets, unveils the Cobos Project, an Open Source initiative dedicated to Cobol Mainframe applications under Eclipse, a real alternative to existing Mainframe commercial solutions.

The Cobos project, in brief

Derived from the IDE Cobol project, Cobos proposes the use of the Eclipse environment to develop Cobol applications locally, with a communication interface based on SSH, (applications for host connection, connection information configuration, automatic connection/disconnection, remote execution of commands, file transfer), limiting to the strict minimum the exchanges with the operational platform. Natively, Cobos integrates a local compiler, inspired by the OpenCobol project, to which Metrixware has added object generation under Windows with Visual Studio, CICS and DB2 support as well as the expansion of the Cobol Copy clauses.
