LegStar is a set of development tools and execution runtimes aimed at integrating legacy COBOL applications with Java and SOA technologies.
Here are some common use cases:
LegStar generates COBOL Transformers.
At runtime, mainframe data (containing EBCDIC, COMP, etc.) is transformed to Java, XML or JSON.
The LegStar Transformers are pure Java and can be used directly in your code.
LegStar generates Mainframe Adapters for target CICS programs (Either Commarea or Container driven).
LegStar generates Mainframe Proxies for POJO, Web Services, JBoss ESB or Mule ESB services.
Proxies receive requests from COBOL/CICS programs and mediate calls to the target services.
