I have a farly big application, developed in Fujitsu PowerCOBOL with dozens of windows, and also a considerable number of reports developed in CrystalReports.
It's my aim, and gradually convert this application to Windev.
In Phase 1 may have indexed files (ISAM) and Hyperfile (or other) simultaneously, then on phase 2abandon the base in Cobol (the application in question is stable, has a broad base of installations).
I know of no ODBC driver for Cobol ISAM files, howeverFujitsu PowerCOBOL allows the development with relative ease OCX and COM objects.
Any suggestions? Has anyone gone through a similar process.


Thanks
Joe

Hy, my company has developed with the fujitsu cobol, and we are replacing programs with new programs written using WINDEV
We no longer used files cobol replacing them with MSSQL or HYPERFILE and using txt files to exchange data between the two procedures
We also used the only existing ODBC for fujitsu:
- Relativity of rm / cobol.
The internal format of RM / COBOL and Fujitsu ISAM are the same and RELATIVITY provides an excellent ISAM ODBC to use the RM / COBOL or FUJITSU.
The only problem is the high cost of the product.
You can use the existing reports of crystal because you can include ocx crystal (8.5) in WINDEV, but the report of WINDEV is very powerful as or better than crystal report.

Thanks Maurizio !

on the side Windev, i can upgrade Cobol indexed files via OCX (OCX developed in Fujitsu Cobol) - no problem.
In the Cobol side, update Hyperfile is more difficult. Not want to use ODBC, would prefer a solution like pass parameters by a DLL or similar system, if possible.
In C: \ WinDev \ External Languages ​​\ Cobol, I am not able to work the example.
Using text files, we use a lot of files, it seems to me a lot of work.
Any more suggestions?

Thank you for any help

Hi Jose

In the Cobol side, update Hyperfile is more difficult. Not want to use
ODBC, would prefer a solution like pass parameters by a DLL or similar
system, if possible.


Actually, it shouldbe quite easy, as you can call directly wlanguage
functions/windows from any external language, including cobol. So you
code your data access in windev, then call the appropriate
window/procedure from cobol

Best regards

Hy,
the examples work with microfocus cobol,.
We have rewritten everything and if you know WINDEV is really 10 times faster !.
We have been facilitated because with powercobol 7 we used the database.

I am Cobol programmer for over 20 years, more recently WINDEV.

example:
Table "Customers" in Cobol (ISAM)
Table "Customers" in Windev (Hyperfile)

My goal would do while in Cobol "Write / rewrite / delete cobolrecord",
save the same data in a table with the same contents in Hyperfile
(HADD, HModify, HDelete ...).
Replication of tables in COBOL, in tables Hyperfile preferably without using ODBC or text files.

Best Regards
thanks to all

PRIMA Computing have tools that will do this for you and they are not expensive. (Less than the cost of a .Net COBOL compiler, which you don't need if you use their approach.

If you want to do it manually, you can, of course, but knowing what to do is a big part of it, and the tools make it very quick and easy.

There are presentations of the background to their approach and videos of the tools in action, they can also refer you to other companies that have used or are planning to use the tools for PowerCOBOL migration and will do a Proof of Concept with you if you like what they do.
