The COBOL-IT Developer Studio is an Eclipse-based development environment that allows you to develop, debug and maintain your legacy COBOL applications in a highly-configurable project-oriented environment.
Our goal is to provide you with an Eclipse-based tool for Development and Debugging on all of the platforms on which the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite Enterprise Edition is available.
Benefit from the broad portability, and ability to integrate the widest range of third-party tools into your Eclipse-based development environment.
Use the Developer Studio to compile, run, and run in debug on any machine on which you have the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite installed.
|Eclipse-based Development Environment||COBOL-IT Developer Studio is certified on Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms for working on projects located on remote machines|
|Fully featured for the COBOL Developer||The COBOL-IT Developer Studio includes the Developer Studio Perspective for work on local projects, a Remote System Explorer Perspective for work on remote hosts, and a Debugger Perspective for feature-rich debugging.|
|Highly configurable work environment||Configure you workspace, populate your projects, set compiler flags and environment variables, and then build and run the programs in your application.|
|COBOL-aware Code Editor||Create programming templates, program hot-keys, colorize reserved words. Easily identify and correct compiler errors.|
|Integrate source and data stored in a distributed computing environment||Operates with files and folders on local or remote host machines.|
|Remote Systems Perspective||Allows you to create COBOL Workspaces, Projects, and Programs on remote host machines, and use the local compiler, runtime and debugger.|
|Access External Utilities||Maximizes the flexibility and adaptability of the development environment for the specific needs of the user.|
|Powerful string search functions||Allows the user to quickly identify searched strings, and if necessary, modify source code.|
|Outline View automatically generated from source code||Provides clickable entry points to specific points in the program, increasing the efficiency with which the programmer can navigate large source files.|
|Compiler Console view of the output from a Build||Provides a familiar view on the workings of the compiler.|
|Debugger support for EBCDIC-encoded programs.||Enhances debugging capabilities during transition from the mainframe.|
|Debugger support for UTF-8 protocol||Provides the ablity to display values in Hex and in UTF-8 in the Variable and Monitor windows of the Debugger Perspective.|
|Support for third-party source code control systems||Improves Development capabilities by providing interfaces for configuring source code control commands|
|Data Displayer Perspective for File Editing||Open any indexed, relative, binary sequential or line sequential file in the Data Displayer in either Read-Only or Read-Write mode. Modify data in either ASCII or hex format.|
|Code Coverage||Run your program with a Code Coverage Configuration, and collect information on lines of code executed by your application during a run cycle.|
|Debug using COBOL debugger or “C” debugger.||Attach a “C” debugger and step through “C” source code, and return to the COBOL debugger to step through COBOL code in the same debugging session.|
