Azure Service for COBOL CopyBook RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is there any Service on Azure which can read COBOL Copybook and create CSV/XML files?

    We are pulling Mainframe data in FTP location. And need to read Copy Book and merge with data and push to Azure BLOB Storage.

    Please let us know if any other work around on this

    Thanks in Advance.

    Thanks,

    Peer Md.

  • A COBOL copy book contains COBOL source code so it must be read by a COBOL compiler. Based on Mainframe workloads supported on Azure I assume that what you are looking for is not a feature of Azure but is instead a feature of whatever compiler you are using. If you have not yet funded a compiler then you should analyze the vendors in that list. My guess is that you will need to write a simple program to pull a copy book and write it out. You probably need to compile the program with minor modifications for each copy book.
