Features and Benefits
isCOBOL Evolve delivers feature rich functionality at a competitive price point. Select an option below to learn how isCOBOL Evolve helps businesses achieve the following:
  1. Improve time to market
  2. Reduce costs and enhance profitability
  3. Simplify data access and deployment
  4. Deliver future-proof computing
1. Improve time-to-market through streamlined development and deployment

Feature Benefit
100% Java Compiler
Platform agnostic, ANSI-compliant COBOL compiler that eliminates the need to maintain different application code bases for different operating environments and allows developers to work with the same compiler on a variety of platforms
100% Java Runtime
Eliminates the need for developers to take the time to code and maintain a separate user interface (UI) for every deployment platform (i.e. no longer need to write the UI one way for Windows, another way for UNIX and Linux, etc.)
Eliminates MAVs (memory access violations) and saves developers hours, days or sometimes even weeks to identify and resolve a problem
IDE with Integrated Virtual Machine
Makes the complete portability and scalability of applications possible by automatically eliminating any hardware or operating system differences during development

2. Reduce costs and enhance profitability by eliminating multiple licensing fees and efficiently harnessing existing computing resources

FeatureBenefit details
All-inclusive, 100% portable Runtime Environment
Delivers high throughput computing at a good value by including a debugger, Thin Client and Distributed processing capabilities, as well as two ISAM file systems for no additional fee
100% Java Compiler
Eliminates the need to purchase and use a different compiler for different operating systems
100% Java Debugger
Eliminates the need to purchase and use a different debugger for every deployment platform
True multi-threaded processing
Utilizes operating system threads, versus emulated threads, so applications run in multiple threads -- not multiple processes -- reducing system overhead and start-up time

3. Simplify data access and deployment

FeatureBenefit details
Access RDBMS and ISAM through JDBC
Allows developers to focus on application coding without worrying about what particular data storage solution will be chosen in deployment
Enables easy transitions other ISAM file systems or JDBC-compliant relational database without source code changes and without changing the behavior of applications (no relinking of runtime libraries required)
Eliminates requirement for database-specific pre-compilation step during development
Enables open access to popular RDBMS environments versus proprietary middleware access, improving performance and simplifying support
Database Bridge
Easily convert COBOL file I/O verbs to embedded SQL source code, opening previously ISAM-bound programs to relational data

4. Deliver future proof computing for valuable COBOL assets

FeatureBenefit details
100% Java Runtime
Allows valuable COBOL application and development assets to be retained and enhanced while taking full advantage of the Java technology platform in deployment
isCOBOL Web Direct 2.0
Leverages AJAX technology to easily deploy Rich Client COBOL Interface applications on the Web
