Object-oriented programming (OOP) represents an opportunity to leverage contemporary IT architectures such as the Java Virtual Machine or .NET. OOP is the standard for these platforms.
Existing procedural programs can work quite happily on these new platforms – but to fully harness .NET and JVM, a good grounding in OOP will make all the difference.
OOP for COBOL on demand
We recently ran a series of educational webinars on OOP for COBOL. And we’ve been inundated with requests to re-run them from clients who couldn’t make it on the day. So we’ve made the webinars, along with all the supporting materials and code samples, available for you to catch up in your own time.
Each webinar focuses on a key aspect of OOP, building up your knowledge as we wrap up each session with exercises you can try at home in preparation for the next topic in the series:
- An Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming
- Your first COBOL Class
- Data and Properties
- Collection Classes
- Accessing Procedural COBOL from Java and C#
Get started in three simple steps:
1. Watch the on demand videos
Available here: www.microfocus.com/oopwebinars
2. Download the sample code and supporting material
Available in sequence on the Visual COBOL Community forum
3. Get practising with a free trial
Download a free trial of Visual COBOL and try the exercises for yourself
