In the recent standards thread, there was some discussion of the continuing
evolution of COBOL (Deutsche Bank using COBOL with XML, ISO updating the COBOL
standard, Micro Focus selling a COBOL for .NET).
Now IBM has announced a COBOL for developers in the enterprise Java arena. It
uses XML bi-directionally.
"Developers can write EJB in Cobol 3.3 on WebSphere z/OS, which is the mainframe
version of the WebSphere application server."
There's been a sizable investment in COBOL in recent years. First Y2K, now for
XML, NET and EJB.
emacs, SGML, COBOL and the Mini Cooper. Hmm. Probably time to invest in a
company making bell bottom pants.
