COBOL Processing Library

COBOL Processing Library

The COBOL library transforms COBOL 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 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. To process EBCDIC encoded COBOL, ensure that you change the encoding settings for the Data Processor transformation to EBCDIC.
