|Title: How do I generate an executable for deployment?|
My application deployment environment assumes that the COBOL main programs are native executables. I understand that with isCOBOL the COBOL main programs are Java classes. It is not feasible for me to change my deployment architecture to require object-orientation, execution from within a Java application, application server or Java-enabled server. My COBOL application depends on there being a native executable for each COBOL main program.
Is there a solution for this problem?
The answer is yes! The vast majority of Veryant's customers have this same requirement since their applications were written for COBOL compilers that produced native executables.
To solve this problem, Veryant's COBOL compiler produces Java classes that have a "main" entry-point that takes command-line style arguments just the same as other COBOL compilers.
Fortunately, whether running Linux, UNIX or Windows, the operating system and system functions can execute shell scripts or batch files exactly as if they were native executables.
For example, the command-line to execute a COBOL program named PRG00001 is
Any arguments passed on the command line after the executable name will be received by the COBOL program in the normal manner.
On Linux/UNIX you can enable a text file as an executable script using the command
On Windows the file extensions
