COBOL Processing Library

COBOL Processing Library

The COBOL library transforms COBOL EBCDIC data to and from XML. When you use the wizard to create a transformation with COBOL input or output, you select a COBOL copybook to define the expected structure of the input or output data.
When you create a Data Processor transformation with COBOL input or output with the wizard, Developer adds the following objects to the transformation:
  • A schema object that defines an XML representation of the COBOL data structure.
  • For COBOL input, Developer adds a Parser that transforms input data from the COBOL EBCDIC data definition to XML.
  • For COBOL output, Developer adds a Serializer that transforms XML to COBOL.
You can create a Data Processor transformation that uses COBOL input or output, but not both.
