Develop, improve, and deploy COBOL and Enterprise applications
Net Express and Server Express™ are integrated application development environments for COBOL developers. Using these tools, developers can modernize existing COBOL and deliver substantial improvements to enterprise applications by modernizing user interfaces, business logic, data storage, and data access. Net Express® and Server Express provide the freedom to deploy applications to the widest range of platforms.
Protect the value of your legacy applications
Existing COBOL applications have years of business logic built into them. This logic contains valuable competitive advantage. Being able to use these applications in new environments for decades to come ensures that both investment and market opportunity are maximized.
Remote development option for Eclipse
Server Express RDO removes unnecessary steps from developing for remote UNIX and Linux servers, bringing even greater productivity to development teams.
Support for service-oriented architecture
With the high performance runtime system, Server for SOA™, developers can quickly harness the power of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and build reliable, enterprise class interconnectivity into their solutions.
Visual Studio and Eclipse integration
Integration with Visual Studio combines the ease-of-use and familiarity of Visual Studio with the power and usability of COBOL. Integration with Eclipse significantly increases developer productivity by exploiting Eclipse tools, improving time-to-market for new products and capabilities.
Multiple deployment options
Applications written in COBOL can be deployed to many platforms and frameworks through Net Express with .Net, Net Express for Eclipse™, Server Express for Eclipse™, and Server Express Remote Deployment Option (RDO).
Simple access to COBOL data
Delivers valuable insight into business performance by opening up COBOL data to spreadsheets, BI, and reporting systems with the Micro Focus XDBC™ option.
