[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 20 January 2011]Can someone detail the emphasis being placed on support for OO COBOL in native environments? (ie. Win32, Unix).
I would really like to embrace the OO support but have a couple of major concerns:
1. OO documentation seems to almost be an 'addendum' in R2 release
In earlier product releases OO support was documented in its own manual with some examples and reasonable explanations of the functionality. That manual has disappeared and been replaced with pretty thin docs in R2. Haven't yet looked at R3.
2. Is this going to be enhanced in the same way as we are seeing for the .Net environment?
At the moment the native syntax is extremely verbose and nowhere near as evolved as what was demonstrated earlier today.
Are there plans in place to bring some of this functionality down to the non-.Net environments?
