Abstract: Despite the common notion of mainframe-based transactional COBOL applications being an outdated technology, in many companies they continue to serve as the IT backbone. Therefore, in the era of big data and cloud services, these applications need to be transformed towards open, service-oriented architectures to preserve their value. This challenge has been tackled by different strategies so far, ranging from adding web service layers to existing mainframe applications to various products providing emulation on non-mainframe platforms. In contrast, in this paper this transformation is considered not as a mere COBOL re-hosting issue, but from the perspective of integrating COBOL in Java EE-based web applications. An open framework is demonstrated for executing existing transactional COBOL programs as part of Java EE application servers. It is build on established Open Source Software (OSS) components and executes on any Un*x-like operating system, in particular also on the mainframe its elf. (More)
