GoodFly for RM

Smoothly and safely migrate to .NET

GoodFly for RM is the solution for the migration of applications developed in RM COBOL with WOW to Visual COBOL for .Net.

With this innovative solution, several companies have already completed in a short period of time modernization projects of COBOL applications towards .Net, with minimal impact in terms of intervention on the code. The result is a new greatly enhanced User Interface that can be deployed over the web and mobile channels.

The main features of the solution are:

Automatic conversion of COBOL-WOW projects with the creation of WPF screen set.

The mask and the source remain separated, exatcly like in COBOL-WOW. The logic of the program is not modified in any way: the program pilots cobol masks and not vice versa.

Support of all COBOL-WOW controls.

Support of Active-X controls.

Support of main COBOL-WOW functions ( WowGetProp, WowSetProp, WowAddItem, WowGetMessage, etc.).

Emulation of the COBOL-WOW event management.

Conversion, when necessary, of RM/COBOL statements not compatible with Visual Cobol.

Support of the main RM/COBOL P$ spooler functions for printing.

Ability to manage the controls through the COBOL-WOW native calls or directly through the object reference.

Ability to add new controls to the forms, and to handle them in a native way.

The analyzer/code generator can be used to perform automatic changes to the sources, thus facilitating the migration (not only related to WOW functions). Example: if you used a non-graphical Active-X for Winform and you want to replace it with the .NET equivalent and natively access it, the analyzer/code generator can be configured to handle this kind of migration.

Our goal was to convert our old-fashioned, character-based programs developed in RM/Cobol into a modern and graphical application, while preserving the business logic and procedures proven after years and years of code writing. The support we received by GoodWorks was vital for us: they first developed some new basic and complex procedures based on our requisites and then teached us how to best use those tools enabling us to go on managing the project by ourselves.
