Cobol Server 2.2 compatibility

Is Cobol server s/w compatible with other versions of visual cobol ?

Do we need to deploy executables generated from visual cobol 2.3 only to cobol server 2.3, do they work on cobol server 2.2 ?

RE: Cobol Server 2.2 compatibility

We do not claim backward compatibility between running applications compiled with newer compiler versions under older COBOL Server versions.

If you compile your code under 2.3 then you should deploy it using COBOL Server 2.3 or higher.

RE: Cobol Server 2.2 compatibility

Thanks for your reply Chris.

I am trying to download Cobol server 2.3 for Visual studio 2013. But there is only standard cobol server for windows listed. I do not see s/w specific to Visual studio 2013.

Earlier there used to be cobol server 2.2 for Windows (Visual Studio 2012) specific to IDE.

Starting with V2.3 we now only have one version of the COBOL Server product that covers all of the Visual Studio product versions.
