The Solution is based on a double expertise Pacbase™ and Cobol.
It takes full advantage of Pacbase™ strengths :
- the dictionary,
- the macros.
It transforms the linear Cobol code that is generated by Pacbase™ into tree structure native Cobol code.
It makes maintenance of transformed programs and development of new ones easier :
- conservation of shared code coming from macros is optimal,
- structure of migrated programs and of new ones in native Cobol code using the provided development framework are identical,
- homogeneity of the target application portfolio is guaranteed,
- the transformation highly improves clarity, readability and maintenability of the source code,
- it preserves the productivity of the maintenance and development teams,
- maintenance of migrated applications is ensured without any additional workload.
Integration into the developer’s target workbench is easy.
