Abstract

An innovation enables a mainframe application to take advantage of some of the object oriented constructs normally used by object oriented languages. For example, objects can be encapsulated in COBOL object cache modules. For class hierarchies, a design for allowing subclasses to inherit attributes from one or more superclasses can also be implemented. In addition, objects can be persisted in DB2 tables managed by COBOL object caches.
