  • Linux Version of Net COBOL also supports JAVA, C, C++, and Python. 
  • Windows Version of Net COBOL also supports .net. 
  • It also supports Unicode Code set. 
  • It also supports Object-Oriented COBOL.

Platforms for NetCOBOL:
  1. Windows – Net COBOL for Windows
  2. Linux(RHEL6) - Net COBOL for Linux
  3. SPARC – Net COBOL for SPARC
  4. Cloud (Microsoft’s Azure) - COBOL for .net

Features

  1. NetCOBOL complies with International Standard, industry standard specifications, and ordinary standard specifications, which enables stable operation and expansion of key system for the future. Existing skills on COBOL and know-how of mainframes help you a lot.
  2. "NetCOBOL Studio," a COBOL development environment based on Eclipse which is an open-source integrated development environment, has been built into NetCOBOL for Windows, and Microsoft "Visual Studio" has been built into NetCOBOL for .NET as a development environment for .NET Framework. 
  3. COBOL Integrated Development Environment (IDE) allows the improvement of efficiency of the whole development process including design, programming, testing, and maintenance. It enables program development linking with the latest technologies from batch to Web applications. 
  4. NetCOBOL is suitable to use with the latest technologies such as .NET, Java, and XML.
  5. The "PowerBSORT" speeds up sorting and merging the data.

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…
