Application Development Session: Columbus Park

Session Evaluation

We want developers to test often and early, and we want tests to be small and robust. Today Bankdata developers are testing COBOL sections, in the open source tool; COBOL Check, from the Open Mainframe Project. Bankdata has added unit test gates to production, requiring the developers unit tests to pass. And we are gathering code coverage data for unit tests, and delivering dashboards to teams.

This session will contain, a demo of what COBOL unit tests look like. A explanation of how COBOL check works. A walkthrough of the syntax of COBOL Check. How Bankdata have integrated COBOL Check in our IDE and build pipelines. How to get involved with COBOL Check, and start using it.
