Introduction

Server Express provides compatibility with the following COBOL programming languages:
  • DG Interactive COBOL
  • RM/COBOL

This enables you to migrate programs from any of these environments to Server Express.

You can:
  • Convert applications written in the selected COBOL language to the Micro Focus COBOL language, and enhance them using the advanced language and development features offered by Server Express.
  • Retain the use of the selected COBOL on some machine environments while moving to Server Express on others. You might want to maintain a common set of source programs which are suitable for all environments.
Any error messages and numbers that may be returned when you submit your program to Server Express or when you execute the resulting code are different in the two environments. This should present no problems, but is something of which you should be aware.
