Tools/Cobol project: "Is this anything?" [message #468851] Thu, 07 August 2003 14:31 Go to next message

On the David Letterman show, they have a recurring spot where they
reveal something on stage and they debate as to whether it "is anything".

I would like to know if the Tools/Cobol project "is anything?"

o The project source download is about a year old.
o The project source is not in CVS as far as I can tell.
o I patched the source so that it would build under 2.1.0, but it
doesn't seem to even include all of the features that are shown in the
screen shots, like the outline view for example.
o The source seems to reference a method in StyledText (setTabStopMode)
that is nowhere to be found in Eclipse. Perhaps the Fujitsu team
patched their own version of StyledText?
o The project proposal asks for help, but there is apparently no way to
actually participate.

So, is this anything? I would like to know if this "is anything" before
I waste any time helping to fix it up.

I suspect that since IBM has competing features in Websphere Enterprise,
that this project is not going to get any of their help.

But why even host it as a sub-project under Eclipse tools? Why solicit
participation in a project that is dead?

The Tools/Cobol Project had stopped for a long time.
But we intend to restart the project.

We are currently refactoring the COBOL IDE sources
so that they can work on the original (non-customized)
Eclipse and they are suitable for Eclipse CVS repository.

We will publish the sources in September, which work
on Eclipse 2.0.2 and on Windows. After that, we will
revise the code to work on Eclipse 2.1.x and on other
platforms.

Thanks and regards,

Tomoki Shiratori

Thanks for the update. If the project has been stopped, you may want to
update the project page on the Eclipse site.

This program adds logic to a COBOL program so that a tally is displayed detailing the number of times each section and paragraph is passed through when the program is executed. In addition, a procedure map is displayed for each executed section and paragraph.

This tool is used by Redvers Consulting analysts to identify inefficient processing in batch optimisation projects.This program reads a COBOL program source code and produces a procedure map for each section and paragraph in the procedure division. In addition, words or strings of special interest can be specified, and their occurrences are listed after each procedure map entry.

We've been developing COBOL programming tools for nearly 30 years, and marketing them since 1985. Our broad experience with COBOL application development gives us a uniquely COBOL perspective when developing our outstanding software.
Educational Licenses

Are you teaching or taking a class in COBOL programming? Contact us about heavily-discounted educational licenses for GUI ScreenIO.
Marketing Partnerships

We're seeking qualified companies capable of working with us to increase GUI ScreenIO's penetration into non-English language markets. GUI ScreenIO's multi-lingual capabilities are exceptionally well suited for multiple language applications.

If your company is well established in a country whose primary language is other than English, experienced with COBOL, and has a successful track record marketing COBOL products, we'd like to hear from you. All tools that are offered in this moment in COBTOOLS have been created by necessities that we have had ourself, since when working directly with COBOL we noticed ourselves of our own necessities.

When solving our necessities we created products that as well, solve those of others companies developers that use the same programming language (COBOL).

Under this philosophy, it's like we have created and improved a series tools that always has been focused for the COBOL Languaje.

We always put ahead the necessities of the developers, since thanks to the requests of our clients and their ideas that have contributed , it's since we have been able to improve and let go grow kindness that offers each one of our products.
