Micro Focus Rolls Out Visual Studio 2010 Support

Micro Focus has announced four developer tool releases that focus on developing, analyzing, and testing, and which will integrate with Visual Studio 2010. The tools include:

  • Micro Focus COBOL, which lets developers exploit existing enterprise apps on the Microsoft platform. Most organizations that still operate COBOL-based applications now have a low risk opportunity to take advantage of Visual Studio 2010 without rewriting their applications.
  • Silk4J, a tool for functional and regression test automation. Silk4J supports all applications, whether currently on a Microsoft platform or not.
  • DevPartner, a suite that enables developers to debug, analyze, test, and tune applications for enhanced visibility into the inner workings of applications being developed within Visual Studio 2010.
  • Analyzer Express, a visibility tool that will help developers accelerate their day-to-day maintenance activities. Analyzer Express traces data flow through a program with one click of the mouse from within Visual Studio 2010. Developers can quickly assess a program, find artifacts of interest, and make needed enhancements without switching tools.

"Our presence in the roll-out of Visual Studio 2010 demonstrates both the relevance of core COBOL assets within global organizations' IT infrastructures and the demand from the developer community to exploit them on Microsoft platforms," says Micro Focus' Peter Duffell.
