What is COBOL

COBOL is the acronym for “common business-oriented language” and was first released in 1959.

It is a computer programming language created for business, finance, and administrative systems. It is used in particular for business applications that run on large computers. COBOL is quite wordy: its programs are extremely complex and the average size of a module is composed of 600 lines of code – compared to Java where it is 30 lines.

ISO/IEC 1989:2014 defines the syntax and semantics of COBOL. This language is still very much in use in big companies and financial institutions.
