COBOL Training

Introduction of COBOL Training:

COBOL Training from Global Online Training is a leading online training platform. COBOL stands for the Common Business Oriented Language. In a conference formed CODASYL is to develop a language for business data processing needs which is now known as COBOL.COBOL is used for writing application programs. The applications like those in defense domain, insurance domain etc,…  With our COBOL online Training you can able to work and develop business application by using programming language. It is mostly adopted by large enterprise for encoding their business rules in COBOL programming language. In today world COBOL is most widely used programming language, by using this language there are nearly 5 billion of code written in every year for write or rewrite COBOL applications. 

With the COBOL applications the transactions were increase 200 more times. For huge data processing platforms such as defiance and financial domains you can write COBOL script.

COBOL Content

Explanation about COBOL Training:

COBOL is a high level language it must understand the way COBOL works which only understood the machine code. COBOL is the code it must be converted into machine code to with using of compiler and it runs through the same compiler. It firstly it checks for syntax errors and then it converts into machine language.

  • COBOL is basically designed for government administrative systems and small business companies business and finance systems.
  • Later it was developed and used to provide support for business applications and by business programming language.
  • With the COBOL programming you can able to re – platform a COBOL screen section application with the industry standards on the Java platform.
  • In COBOL online Training we will teach about important elements such as eclipse, industry standard IDE, development plug – INS etc.

Global online Trainings will explain in detail about how to plan and understand business in the most impact way to ensure into effective modernization in project.


What is COBOL Training?

The complete form of COBOL is Common Business Oriented Language. It is user friendly to understand and it is a high level language for business data processing and easy to handle large amount of data. To execute the COBOL program JCL (Job Control Language) is required. In mainframes COBOL is only programming language to write all the applications.

In COBOL Training you will know about the important features, those features are as follows

  • COBOL is a standard language and it was compiled and executed on IBM Mainframes as well as personal computers.
  • The advanced facilities in COBOL will helps to monitor huge data of business oriented programs.
  • By using IBM Mainframe you can do COBOL programming syntax’s and data structures.
  • Based on advanced COBOL handling capabilities you can handle files, database and Virtual Contact File (VCF).
  • In COBOL robust language there are a lot of debugging and testing tools available. There are various divisions and logical control structures available in the COBOL structure language.

In Global Online Trainings our exert trainers will teach many more features of COBOL programming language.


Architecture of COBOL programming:

In COBOL Training will teach the important steps for programming those are as follows.

  • In the structure, first step is programming and it contains four important divisions to write.
  • With SAP HANA ABAP you can design layer architecture in COBOL program designing.
  • Again in the division there are some sections and those sections are defined by COBOL. There are some user defines sections are also available and those are useful for program structure.
  • Inside the sections there are some user defined paragraphs are available and you can use those paragraphs to write a code.
  • Sentences are one which is used to write paragraphs in sections. The statements and characters are a part of program structure and these are used to from the sentences.

In Global online Trainings our trainers will explain in detail about preparing Program Structure by using COBOL language.


Why Choose COBOL Training?

Now a day COBOL was the first widely used high-level programming language. It is an a language like which is user friendly. All the instructions can be simple in the words.

COBOL is used for self documenting language.

With COBOL language we can handle huge data processing.

This language is a compatible with its previous versions.

This language has a very impact on the effective error messages and so, resolution of bugs is easier.


What are the data types used in COBOL Training?

In COBOL there are mainly five Data Types are mostly using, those areCOBOL Data Types


In working storage section we can define the variables in the Syntax. In Level Number you can specify the level of data in the record. In Data Name you can give the name of the variable in the COBOL programmed procedure division.  

Level Number

By using Level Number in COBOL you can specify the data Type and data level in the record.

  • The group items are two types those are group of elements or group of addresses and those are interlinked with each other.
  • The elementary items are known as independent items or individual items or variables.

Data Names

  • In COBOL programming, the Data Names is another Data Type and is mainly used to define the data division before using in the procedure division.
  • For user defined names you cannot use COBOL reserve words, because COBOL program will treat Data Names as addition.

Picture close

The Picture close is used to define the Data Type such as what kind of data you need to store in the variable. The data may be numeric, alphabetic, alphanumeric and decimal also.


Value close

The Value close in COBOL is used as an optional clause used to initialize the data items. From the beginning, if you want to assign a value to a variable then you can do it through Value close. So that you can declare the variable after that you can write the value and also you can mention the value.

In this COBOL online Training you will know in detail about the Data Types.    

What are the divisions in COBOL Online Training?

There are two types of divisions while programming by using COBOL, those are

Identification Division
  • This division will treat as mandatory division inside a COBOL program. Without Identification division the COBOL program will never get executed.
  • The main reason behind this is we will mention program as well as programmer name.
Environment Division
  • By using this division you can specify input and output files to the program by assigning specific names.
  • In the environment division the Configuration section will gives the information about which program was executed.
  • The Input – Output section will give information about what are the files to be used in the program.
 What are the features of COBOL?

COBOL is a standard language and it can be compiled and executed on the machines such as IBM, and personal computers, etc.

COBOL was designed for business oriented applications which are related to financial domain, and defense domain, etc. COBOL can handle huge volumes of data because of its advances file handling capabilities.

COBOL is a robust language as its numerous and testing tools which available for almost all the platforms.

In COBOL logical control structures are available. Which are makes it easier to read and modify and it has different divisions, so it is easy to debug.

What are the basics of COBOL?

COBOL is the one of the oldest programming language in use. Whenever COBOL was developed one of the design goals was to make it as possible. COBOL uses structural concepts normally associated with such section and sentence.

COBOL syntax is defined using particular notation sometimes these are called the COBOL Meta language.

It is used to simplify the syntax diagrams and reduce the number of rules that must be explained.

In this COBOL, evaluating an arithmetic expression and assigning the result to a data item is achieved by means of the COMPUTE statement.

COBOL is a simple language with a limited scope of function. It encourages a simple straightforward programming style.

The design goals for COBOL are to make it possible for non-programmers such as supervisors, managers and users, to read and understand COBOL code.
