Delta NewsletterNewsletter - Tuesday, 22. October 2019

Dear Reader,

The importance of mainframes for IT landscapes in large companies has changed: Whereas they were previously regarded as a necessary evil and condemned to extinction like dinosaurs, today they are increasingly seen as a strategically important element for the future.

Discuss with experts and users at the Mainframe Technology Workshop.

We also have news for you on generative development with Delta ADS, so that you can make your development even more efficient - on mainframes and PCs.

We wish you informative reading and look forward to your feedback.

Your Delta Software Technology Team


  • New: Delta ADS 6 on Mainframe
  • Mainframe Technology Workshop of T-Systems
  • New Delta ADS Release Supports New Data Types
  • Delta ADS Plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 available

Open Newsletter:

ADS – Automatisierte Entwicklung für COBOL und PL/ISome time ago, we released Delta ADS 6 on PC as a new version of our proven generative development system for the application development on PC platforms. With this new Delta ADS, we offer many new functions that significantly improve the understanding of the applications and facilitate the development and maintenance of the extensive and complex COBOL and PL/I applications.

Many of our customers see the mainframe and the generative development of their important core applications with Delta ADS as a strategic part of their IT environment. This is why we are now making Delta ADS 6 available for mainframe environments as well.

Further information can be found here:


ADS on Visual StudioWith ADS on Visual Studio you can now standardize your working environments for the application development. ADS on Visual Studio smoothly integrates all ADS tools into your development environment.

This plugin is now also available for Microsoft Visual Studio 2019.

In addition to Visual Studio, plug-ins for Eclipse-based development environments are also available such as Micro Focus Enterprise Developer for z.

ADS Application Development for COBOL and PL/IDigitisation requires not only new forms of processing, but also new data types. Examples of this are new data types such as

  • BLOB - Binary Large Object
  • CLOB - Character Large Object
  • XML, etc.

These data types enable the storage of large unstructured binary data objects such as image, audio or multimedia files as part of the corresponding data records directly in the respective database or, in the case of CLOB, to process data in international Unicode format.

Delta ADS 6.4.0

The now released Delta ADS for COBOL 6.4.0 offers you additional functions for creating Data Access Servers for IBM DB2 and Oracle and supports the usage of new SQL data types such as BLOB, CLOB, XML, etc.

These data types are defined differently in the different database systems. As always, Delta ADS compensates these differences automatically, following the principle "Single Source - Multiple Target".

In addition, the new Delta ADS 6.4.0 also includes new features that improve performance. Please refer to our Release Notes for further information.

Contact us and order your update for your Delta ADS now.
