The isCOBOL Compiler translates COBOL source code into Java classes that are then executed with the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The isCOBOL Compiler is a platform agnostic, ANSI-compliant COBOL compiler that generates object-orientated code which efficiently runs on any platform that supports a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.4.2 or greater. The isCOBOL Compiler is written in 100% pure Java. The isCOBOL Runtime Environment enables applications to able to run on any device supporting a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) — from mainframes to mobile phones.
PERCobol Enterprise Edition is a robust COBOL development solution enabling COBOL programs to execute on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). PERCobol is a fully ANSI 1985 X3.23b standard compliant COBOL compiler which generates Java source code. The resulting Java source code can then be compiled using any JDK 1.1+ compliant Java Compiler and will run on any JDK 1.1+ implementation of the Java Virtual Machine as either an applet or application depending upon how the program is invoked (applets are subject to applet security restrictions).
