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.

The support we had from GoodWorks staff was great. They helped us to convert our application for Carriers from RM Cobol using CobolWOW graphics to Micro Focus Visual Cobol using XAML graphics. Moreover they handled the migration of RM proprietary data into relational DB tables while retaining COBOL standard data access instructions and without changes into the program. We trust GoodWorks as a really experienced partner for the modernization of software applications and we look forward to continue to share success with them.
