isCOBOL supports Postgres (PostgreSQL) in two ways:
- Through a built-in COBOL/ESQL compiler which translates EXEC SQL statements to JDBC
- Through isCOBOL ESQL Generator which creates bridge programs that route COBOL indexed file I/O statements to Postgres through JDBC
For sample programs see PostgreSQL Example with COBOL/ESQL and ISAM-to-RDBMS bridge (isCOBOL ESQL Generator) in the Veryant Discussion Forums under Sample Programs.
PostgreSQL 9.0.1 can be downloaded from http://www.enterprisedb.com/products/download.do
The PostgreSQL JDBC driver can be downloaded from http://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html
For example, create a folder C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.0\jdbc4 and place postgresql-9.0-801.jdbc4.jar in that folder.
To create a test database, run pgAdmin III from "Start Menu" >> "PostgreSQL 9.0". Right-click on the server "PostgreSQL 9.0" and Connect. Right-click on Databases and select "New Database...". Name the database "test" and take all of the defaults.
