Let's see how Mergilent has rehosted a legacy system running on old green screen AS/400 environment on a .NET platform.
To achieve the re-hosting of the legacy system, we have ported the business logic of the legacy application as is, directly into the Microsoft Visual Studio environment.
The porting of the legacy application was achieved by using the Raincode COBOL compiler plugin, which allows importing the COBOL modules into the Microsoft Visual Studio environment. And then, we recompiled each COBOL module using the Raincode COBOL compiler.
