COBOL-IT Compiler Suite

The COBOL-IT Developer Studio is an Eclipse-based development environment that allows you to develop, debug and maintain your legacy COBOL applications in a highly-configurable project-oriented environment. Our goal is to provide you with an Eclipse-based tool for Development and Debugging on all of the platforms on which the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite Enterprise Edition is available.

Eclipse-based Development Environment COBOL-IT Developer Studio is certified on Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms for working on projects located on remote machines.
Fully featured for the COBOL Developer The COBOL-IT Developer Studio includes the Developer Studio Perspective for work on local projects, a Remote System Explorer Perspective for work on remote hosts, and a Debugger Perspective for feature-rich debugging.
Highly configurable work environment Configure you workspace, populate your projects, set compiler flags and environment variables, and then build and run the programs in your application.
COBOL-aware Code Editor Create programming templates, program hot-keys, colorize reserved words. Easily identify and correct compiler errors.
Integrate source and data stored in a distributed computing environment Operates with files and folders on local or remote host machines.
Remote Systems Perspective Allows you to create COBOL Workspaces, Projects, and Programs on remote host machines, and use the local compiler, runtime and debugger.
