Migration away from a fourth generation language such as COOL:Gen is just one aspect of a much larger modernization trend in the IT world," said Dreier.
The BluePhoenix IT Modernization process uses the BluePhoenix LanguageMigrator tool to automate much of the conversion from COOL:Gen to COBOL.
By matching logical models and application designs precisely to our actual business processes, COOL:Gen ensures design errors are kept to a minimum and protects our investments if we need to make changes later on.
CA professional services consultants are assisting with the implementation of COOL:Gen to help achieve maximum reductions in deployment timeframes.
Few solutions can match the flexibility and performance of COOL:Gen as a full-featured eBusiness application development solution," said Wasim Ahmad, vice president of marketing, application development solutions, CA.
COOL:Gen enables developers to quickly produce complex eBusiness applications that support both traditional GUI and Web-based clients, while maximizing efficiency and component reuse across multiple development projects.
This partnership leverages JIEC's systems integration expertise and the robust CA COOL:Gen development environment to create a solid foundation for rapid development of Web-based eBusiness applications," said Shigeru Kimura, president and CEO, JIEC.
COOL:Gen also provides a consistent environment for AMX's programming efforts.
Utilizing CA's COOL:Gen solution has provided AMX with a quality application that enhances our product development cycle by providing a flexible, open architecture that allows us to see rapid results," said Gallup.
CA is providing complete product training to AMX programmers throughout the product development lifecycle, and will play a key role in ensuring that the large-scale transition to COOL:Gen is conducted seamlessly and without disruption.
In addition to streamlining the integration of COBOL applications into Web-based development, COOL:Gen 6.
Additionally, the component-based development (CBD) methodology in COOL:Gen 6.
COOL:Gen also provides the analytical facilities necessary to track and analyze business activity across those online processes.
The Component Manager, which is included in the new versions of COOL:Gen and COOL:Spex, helps users track component specifications and implementations.
The new tool increases the speed of exchanging components between COOL:Spex and COOL:Gen, and streamlines the publishing and consuming of component interfaces and public operations between COOL:Gen repositories.
