Enterprise-Class COBOL Compiler

NetCOBOL is a highly structured ANSI standard COBOL development environment that leverages COBOL’s rich features while offering an interface to modern technologies.

When COBOL applications or components are needed, trust in NetCOBOL’s development environments (Visual Studio, Eclipse, or native Windows) to improve the efficiencies of your development process. Whether design, programming, testing or
maintenance, the integrated development environment (IDE) conforms to your existing platform while modernizing your program development.

The Benefits of NetCOBOL

NetCOBOL gives you all the power of other compilers without expensive runtime fees.

Gains in efficiency and stability across systems

The range of applications of key systems can be expanded and developed by linking with the latest technologies such as .NET, Java, and XML. You have the versatility to modernize the functionalities of your key systems from a single solution which enables stable operation and expansion of key systems for the future. Existing COBOL properties and skills can be fully utilized.

Conforms to your platform

NetCOBOL Studio, a COBOL development environment based on Eclipse, has been built into NetCOBOL for both Windows and Linux. Additionally, NetCOBOL for .NET utilizes the industry-leading Visual Studio development environment.

Enables highly efficient and productive program development

COBOL IDE provides a way to efficiently improve the entire development process, including:

  • Designing
  • Programming
  • Testing
  • Debugging
  • Maintenance

It enables program development linking with the latest technologies from batch to Web applications.


Whether you’re maintaining existing applications or extending them to work with newer technologies, NetCOBOL offers a robust and high-performance environment with flexibility.

Trusted Client

“The beautiful part of the solution was the ability to take our current COBOL code, some of which is over 20 years old, and remove the screen and data interfaces and port that to Windows using NetCOBOL without changing any of the business logic. By moving to this new platform, utilizing XML and Web Services we were able to interface with other platforms much much easier and cheaper than before.”
