1) CA MetaCOBOL is stabilized and the End of Life date is February 15, 2017. However, MetaCOBOL will be included in CA-Datacom/DB 15.1. Customers who do not have a CA Datacom/DB license will need to woek with their CA accoune team to acquire a CA Datacom/DB MetaCOBOL license.
2) There is one caveat that may apply depending on how old a version of COBOL you are upgrading from. If you are already on LE/370, then you should disregard this.
Sites migrating from a non-LE370 (or LE390, etc.) environment to IBM AD/CYCLE LANGUAGE ENVIRONMENT/370 will require replacement load modules for the MetaCOBOL+ 1.1 ISPF DIALOGS. Please contact CA Technical Support if this applies to you.
