Subject: COBOLizer: enabling ALM for COBOL development

Microsoft Visual Studio ALM and Team Foundation
Server provide a powerful, state of the art set of
tools to implement and support Application
Lifecycle Management (ALM) for development
projects. Would it not be great if we could take
advantage of these tools for COBOL development as
well? Visual Studio and TFS already support .NET
and Java, so we would be covering the third big
player in Software Factories and in-house

COBOLizer is a product that extends Visual Studio
by providing it with some new tool windows, a set
of Host clients, a Visual Studio project type and
some editor improvements. All these features allow
working with native COBOL code while taking
advantage of the rich, full-featured Visual Studio
ALM and Team Foundation Server environment.

COBOLizer is not a COBOL compiler or interpreter,
neither a COBOL implementation for .NET. There are
some tools out there that work like that, but the
advantage of COBOLizer is that the code is still
compiled and run natively on the Host, without
having to alter anything in its configuration. And
this is, at the end of the day, what people and
organizations doing COBOL development mainly care
