Micro Focus is offering a free personal edition of its team-oriented dev environment for mainframe projects. The company’s Enterprise Developer Personal Edition aims to reduce the skills gap between COBOL, Java and C# devs with a simple, entry-level version of Micro Focus’ Enterprise Developer team suite..

The personal edition, available for the Eclipse or Visual Studio IDE, looks to boost the agility of developers who perform day-to-day mainframe development activities and address the mainframe skills shortage by reducing the gap between COBOL, Java and C# developers in a collaborative IDE environment, according to Micro Focus product marketing director Julia Ito.

The personal edition comes with smart COBOL editing, data file editor, BMS screen painter, syntax checking and compilation to create a simple way to modernize, develop and maintain mainframe applications, Ito said.

While Micro Focus’ new personal edition may help with the ramp up of new mainframe devs, it may not fill all the needs of the full mainframe apps lifecycle.
