Integrate COBOL applications with web services, XML and Java
IBM COBOL for AIX, V5.1 is a development environment for building business-critical COBOL applications on Power Systems. It includes a COBOL compiler, a COBOL library for non-production use and a debugger that lets you visually debug a program from your workstation. COBOL for AIX uses common compiler back end technology from XL C, XL C/C++ and XL Fortran to give better performance.
IBM COBOL Runtime Environment for AIX V5.1 is the runtime component of the COBOL for AIX product. Deployment of IBM COBOL applications requires the COBOL Runtime Environment to execute the applications. With this orderable COBOL Runtime Environment, the redistribution of runtime libraries in the COBOL for AIX product is no longer required or permitted.
COBOL for AIX enables you to create 32-bit or 64-bit applications.
