Micro Focus Puts COBOL on the JVM
We all know COBOL is still out there, especially in financial processing systems.  That's why Micro Focus has just revealed its product, Visual COBOL R3.  It allows COBOL coders to to deploy on Java platforms like Eclipse and the JVM.  It also adds constructs from both Java and C# to make COBOL programming less painful. Finally, the development up in Visual COBOL allows remote debugging from the desktop for Linux and Unix servers.  

Google Submits VP8 Docs to IETF
Google recently submitted the bitstream documentation to the  Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) with a request for comments.  The company says that the submission doesn't signal standardization, but it does mean that Google wants to create a canonical public reference of the document.  To date, the only specification has been the source code, but now the detailed description of the bitstream format and decoding mechanism of VP8 provide a written specification.

RE: Edit Your Code Hosted on Google Right in the Browser! Not on iPad unfortunately! Output looks like crap and MobileSafari doesn't support contentEditable. Same problem as with Eclipse Orion. But then Google wouldn't want it very much to work on iPad, I suspect...

COBOL in JVM is nothing new, IBM had that bundled into Mainframe release couple years ago. All you have to do is to code Java in COBOL or code COBOL in Java and use XML instead of copybook in COBOL. You can easily wrap your COBOL with Java code to making it service-oriented that can be consumed as web services through the help of Websphere or internal services using IMS.
