Programming Language  Conversion

Automatic conversion of legacy code such as COBOL, PL/I, or even Assembler is, in many cases, an integral part of the modernization process. MOST's automatic code conversion capability, including the adaptation to the cloud technology, enables companies to retain their functional assets while migrating to newer technology without rewriting the whole application.    


MOST has carried out programming language conversion projects worldwide. These projects have been completed within budget and the scheduled time frame together with a high level of customer satisfaction.

MOST projects are successful due to 3 key contributors:

What We Offer

MOST uses automated tools to convert the code of legacy applications.

The tools automatically convert programming languages such as COBOL, Natural, PL/1, Fortran, Pathfinder (Ingenium), Easytrieve, Assembler, RPG, and JCL to Java, C#, C, Angular, and script languages relevant to the platform of choice on the cloud or on-premise.

While converting MOST can generate microservices in the target language that can be the basis for future enhancements in the cloud. 

Accompanying the tools is a library of predefined "base elements" used to speed up the conversion process.

The converted application can be maintained and enhanced independently by the customer. 

Apart from the core conversion, we handle the required changes to environmental components such as internal and external interfaces, security changes; printing; schedulers.  

Automated conversion of Assembler

MOST offers a solution for converting Assembler code to Java or C#. The conversion is fully automated, subject to Assessment. The converted code is completely maintainable and includes documentation of the original code alongside the converted code.

The following is an example of Assembler code:


The following is the converted code to Java. Note the original ASM code alongside:
