Can we use Micro Focus data format and indexed files directly or do they need some type of conversion?

The Micro Focus File Connector should be used to access and update Micro Focus indexed files without any conversion.
This separates the ISAM native access from the java process.

The File Connector executable program must be built by compiling a program to exe using the Micro Focus compiler.

A special library is necessary for the compilation. That library is provided with isCOBOL at $ISCOBOL/native/static/lib/libctmf.a (currently available for Linux/Unix only).

Please refer to the isCOBOL documentation for a complete explanation on this topic.
