Delivers higher initial code quality

IBM® Rational® Developer for AIX® and Linux COBOL Edition provides visual analysis tools to assist in understanding application performance and structure. It includes static analysis rules to find issues and recommend solutions. This software uses a performance advisor to dynamically analyze application performance and provide expert systems-based recommendations for optimizing applications and correcting performance issues in source code.

Accelerates web and mobile application development

This software includes a substantial subset of the capabilities of IBM Rational Developer for WebSphere® Software. It includes IBM Worklight Studio and IBM Data Studio. It supports a large number of relevant technologies such as Java, Java EE, Web 2.0, mobile, web services, REST services, service-oriented architecture (SOA) and more. In addition, it includes the Cloud Toolkit for performing administrative functions and deploying to IBM WebSphere middleware running in IBM SmartCloud® Enterprise.

Integrates seamlessly with AIX

This software provides IBM-optimizing compilers that feed directly back to the integrated development environment (IDE). You can click on an error in the problems view to position immediately to the suspect source code. Unique IBM Rational debug architecture enables debugging sessions to span languages and platforms. This software supports development of solutions that utilize IBM TXSeries® and WXTR for COBOL applications that require a transaction runtime.

Helps development teams work more efficiently
