*** New Book Announcement ***

          From COBOL to OOP: Changing to Object-Oriented Programming

                                by

                         Markus Knasmller

          dpunkt.verlag, 2001, ISBN 3-932588-95-9

For many years, several companies made use of COBOL and similar
software as programming languages. For this main reason, an amplitude
of Software packages have been written in COBOL, a language mastered
by a vast number of developers. However, the tendency to operate with
more maintainable, as well as more efficient software has opened the
door and led companies to prefer working with object oriented
programming.

This book has been created and issued for COBOL-programmers who are
seeking a methodical change to OOP in a step-by-step and effective
manner. The principles of object-oriented development are, to a great
extent, represented independently of a special language; Examples will
be presented in exemplary fashion in Java and Delphi.

Besides the basics of objective orientation, modern software
techniques such as automatic testing or version management will be
explained. In addition to that, the experience of BMD Systemhaus GmbH
- Austrias leading manufacturer of accounting software - a company
that has actually switched its accounting system from COBOL to OOP,
will be used as back-up and assistance. As a result of this, the
reader not only acquires knowledge of how to develop new object
oriented software, he will also be given the opportunity to obtain
auxiliary aids to re-engineer current COBOL-programmes.

On the enclosed CD-ROM, you will find a large variety of source code
examples in the form of delphi and Java programmes, trial versions of
respective development areas (Delphi, Jbuilder) that may be tested at
will as well as PowerPoint-Presentations of the books contents.

I'm not sure if this is the best place to present your book.

Could you tell us within which environment the BMD accounting SW
were developed and ran before?
And would you like to tell us by which means the SW has been
converted to OOP style and within which environment it is now
developed, maintained and run?

Do you know that there is OO Cobol?
