Batch Java for COBOL Programmers
This series of courses is designed to teach IBM Batch Java to experienced COBOL programmers. It builds on the knowledge and experience of COBOL programmers, and highlights differences that may be confusing. (As a simple example, the verb “CONTINUE” has a different meaning in Java versus COBOL).
Additional, optional topics include web development, which can replace CICS front-end processing. For learning “batch” Java, the emphasis will be on file I/O rather than interacting with the user.
IBM’s most recent update for Java, as of November 27, 2019, is Java SDK8 – version 18.104.22.168. This IBM release is fully compatible with Oracle’s Java version 8, although Oracle has delivered many more releases after its Java 8.
Because this course is for experienced COBOL programmers, participants will have lots of practice converting COBOL statements into Java code, and COBOL data into Java data.
This course teaches you to program in Each course in this series has a suggested duration. Durations can be lengthened by adding extensive case studies (generally 4 to 5 day each, and often ending with a presentation to the students’ team leads and other management). Durations can be shortened, by eliminating topics or by presenting topics with less in-depth coverage. Eliminating workshops is not recommended.
