GUI and Object Oriented Programming in COBOL.
Lorents, Alden C.
Various schools are struggling with the introduction of Object Oriented (OO) programming concepts and GUI (graphical user interfaces) within the traditional COBOL sequence. OO programming has been introduced in some of the curricula with languages such as C++, Smalltalk, and Java. Introducing OO programming into a typical COBOL sequence presents some interesting challenges. There are a number of new concepts to introduce along with various design issues that are relatively new to OO program design, such as file maintenance and data objects. Most C++ programming courses tend to work with objects that are more user interface related, such as traditional GUI objects. This paper describes an example of using OO COBOL and Dialog Systems (GUI builder) in an advanced programming applications course. (Author/AEF)
