Canam Goes JSON with COBOL Integration Tool
October 4, 2011 Alex Woodie
Mississauga, Ontario-based Canam Software created XML Thunder to simplify the task of creating new XML integration points for existing COBOL and C code running on IBM i, z/OS, Unisys, HP Nonstop, and Unix platforms. The software features a GUI design tool and wizard-based guides, and automatically generates COBOL and C code that’s mapped to XML documents or simple object access protocol (SOAP) statements.
Canam says one of its customers has adopted JSON, and the result was a several hundred percent increase in processing speed relative to comparable SOAP messages. Canam claims more than 300 customers in 50 countries. For more information see the vendor’s website at www.canamsoftware.com.
