COBOL Check – the Unit Testing Framework for COBOL (Video)

By | June 15, 2022

COBOL Check is a unit testing framework for COBOL created to help COBOL programmers who have difficulties with contemporary development methods such as test driven development. One of the problems with the tooling for the COBOL language  and other mainframe languages currently available is that they do not offer the same levels of granularity for unit testing as opposed to what is available for some of the other languages such as Java and C#. Dave Nicolette, Programmer and Chair of Open Mainframe Project‘s COBOL Check project, explains in this video what COBOL Check is and what challenges it is trying to solve. Watch the video below.
