I am currently using RM COBOL with SP2. My company wants to move to a web application with a SQL Server back end. We are looking at Visual COBOL.
Can anybody give me a basic migration path? I know we will have to remove all of the SP2 code but will I have to convert my current programs to classes? Is there a conversion tool that will take my FD's and make tables from them?
Since this is a major undertaking and will take a lot of time to develop, we want to be able to develop our new system and keep adding features to our current application that is in the field. Will we have to maintain 2 code sets?
Is there a way to leverage the functionality of our current code base without changing the program?
This is the second time I have posted this question and no one has replied. Someone from Micro Focus must have some information on this topic.
Any information would be appreciated.
