Kubernetes and Outsystems and Microfocus COBOL .net adaptation

Dear persons concerned.  I have 2 questions.

1. Kubernetes and Outsystems. I learned that Outsystems 11 now can manage Docker container. Kubernetes preparation needs a lot of efforts in manual preparation. On the other hand the publich clouds provide managed kubernetes services are available.  Then it migtht be easier to manage kubernetes for Outsystems. Is this understanding correct ?  As you know, Kubernetes is growing very fast with a lot of additional functions. It is very attractive if Outsystems can integrate Kubernetes as RUN platform.    2. Outsystems supports .net. then  Microfocus COBOL which is .net compliant. can supported by OUTsystems ?   Thank you and best regards, 







For #1(Kubernetes), you may find the following articles useful:

For #2 (MicroFocus COBOL), what is the use-case you are wanting to support? If you want to use COBOL .NET logic that is packaged as a .NET DLL, that may be possible, assuming it's a normal DLL.

It would be helpful to have more information on what you need to do with your MicroFocus COBOL code, however, to provide an accurate answer.

Dear sir,

Thank you very much for your kind information.

Regarding #1  Do you have any reference customers , who are using Kubernetes with Outsystems. ?

Regarding #2  I assumed that some customers would like to utilize the existing COBOL codes  even when migrating to Outsystems.  In Japan many big companies are using mainframe so they have tons fo COBOL codes.

Thank again and best regards,




This forum is really focused on issues related to developing OutSystems apps.

For customer references, I would recommend working with your OutSystems sales representative, who can help you find that information.
