Batch Java for COBOL Programmers
This series of courses is designed to teach IBM Batch Java on a z/OS mainframe. If participants are experienced COBOL programmers, then this course will build 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, topics can include web development, which can replace CICS front-end processing. For “batch” Java, the emphasis is on file I/O rather than interacting with the user.
Prerequisites include basic Unix, z/OS concepts, TSO/ISPF, basic JCL and optionally, COBOL.
When this course is presented to experienced COBOL programmers, the participants will have lots of practice converting COBOL statements into Java code, and COBOL data into Java data, in order to understand the similarities and differences
This course teaches you to program in batch mainframe Java. Each topic 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.
