IDEAL-DATACOM, PL/1 or COBOL
DataKom 360 migrates CA-IDEAL applications to standard and readable COBOL. Datacom idiosyncrasies are addressed (such as deletion of sets of records one by one replaced by a single SQL statement) to improve quality and readability, thereby considerably easing the maintenance of the migrated application. The CA-Ideal to COBOL translator does not stop at programs only, but covers all aspects of the CA-IDEAL programming environment:
- IDEAL Panels are converted to CICS BMS maps
- IDEAL Reports are converted to semantically equivalent COBOL programs
- The conversion applies mainly to CA-IDEAL, since existing COBOL and PL/I code is to be moved as is
A 100% automatic tool
As the tool is fully automatized, it’s no matters how many times the source are translated.
You can run the translation every day if you feel like it, configure it and rerun, change your mind and rerun again… and again!
