    Régime Social des Indépendants migrates COBOL to maintainable Java with 100% accuracy



SoftwareMining's conversion solutions were used by Régime Social des Indépendants (part of the French Social Security office) for the migration of their COBOL application to Java. The project was heralded as 'all change for the better' with no disruption to services and 100% success at a fraction of the cost of a rewrite.
Régime Social des Indépendants (RSI) represents an insured body of practitioners, merchants and professional service providers. Supplying a public service, the RSI manages the social protection of more than 5.6 million policyholders and beneficiaries.

When RSI took the decision to build a new common application, it was vital for the new look system to mirror the original, maintaining the policyholder database and the procedure for batch applications.

To sustain functionality, the EXTCALC module responsible for the real-time calculation of retirement rights was automatically translated from COBOL to Java using SoftwareMining's COBOL to Java conversion technology. The quality and integrity of the code generated by SoftwareMining tools was a huge advantage to RSI, allowing the new code to be maintained by existing Java/JEE developers.

TELEBIG, The French legacy modernization specialist and an RSI partner, who originally contributed to the migration of the Retirement Application from Bull GCOS7 (COBOL, IDSII, Mantis) to unix (AIX)/Oracle, managed the conversion of the COBOL application to Java using SoftwareMining tools and services.

SoftwareMining's approach allowed the EXTCALC module to be deployed without any need for modification while developing the interfaces with 100% iso-functionality. Translation was 100% correct with zero regression, and Bull successfully integrated it into SIPRES.
