VisualAge for COBOL and JAVA
I'm using the VisualAge for COBOL version 2.2 in Windows95. Is there an
"easy" way to couple a Java program to COBOL, such as
* Write AND link a COBOL DLL so that it acts as a Native Interface for a
JAVA applet ?
I was able to do it with JDK1.1 and the shareware Java Coroutine Class
Library for Win32 which is different from the Java Native
A 1996 IBM COBOL Newsletter explained the procedure for AIX and promised an
analogous example for Windows later, but I've never seen it...?
* Use IBM's CORBA (DSOM) to generate to IDL and SOM-repository and then
integrate with JAVA-IDL interface in JDK1.2 ? It is not clear how the
JDK1.2 ORB works together with DSOM.
By the way, I refuse to accept that the answer would be VisualAge for C++
as an intermediate...
Any examples or suggestions are warmly welcomed !
P.S. I know some other products have native Java translation, which is
