Preserve case sensitivity of identifiers for COBOL web services
When creating webservices currently COBOL does not have a way preserve the case of identifier names used in the COBOL program when generating PCML.
When interacting with Nadir Amra from IBM, email@example.com, whilst trying to solve a problem we were facing when creating a Cobol webservice whose parameters come in mixed case we were unable to compile the program so that the PCML that is generated preserves the case in which the parameters are defined. It seems RPG has an option DCLCASE to compile as follows:CTL-OPT PGMINFO(*PCML:*MODULE:*DCLCASE) that preserves the case. This sort of option would be the one that we are looking to have.
