VS/Cobol Interpreter allows programs written and compiled with OS/VS COBOL to execute in CICS Transaction Server 3.1 and above. No program changes or recompiles are required. Continue to seamlessly run your OS/VS COBOL programs in CICS TS V3.1 (and above).
When activated, VS/Cobol Interpreter automatically intercepts OS/VS COBOL programs and provides the necessary environment for them to function properly in CICS Transaction Server 3 or 4.
With the “Automatic program detection” feature of VCI, programs written in OS/VS COBOL are automatically included and handled by the software. If this option is not specified, users must customize an include list to select OS/VS COBOL programs processed by VCI. Generic and character masking features are available to control inclusion and exclusion of programs from the VCI process.
