Source Recovery of COBOL or Assembler source code from IBM MVS or VSE executable programs
Source Recovery of COBOL or Assembler source code from IBM MVS or VSE executable programs


The Source Recovery Company offers two levels of service, Quick Recovery and Full Recovery. Only the Full Recovery is validated and guaranteed to produce source code that results in a 100% functionally equivalent executable.  Please Contact Us with any questions about the services.

Quick Recovery - deliverable is a source file generated from the ReSource™ but not guaranteed to produce completely accurate, compilable source code. This generated source may contain unrecovered code in the form of embedded assembler statements.

Due to enhancements to ReSource the cost of a quick recovery is being re-evaluated. The new price is scheduled to be announced shortly and will be effective July 1st, 2018.

Full Recovery - deliverable is a source program guaranteed to produce a load module that is 100% functionally equivalent to your original executable program.

In order to determine the cost of a full recovery, an initial analysis of the load module(s) must be done. The initial analysis is provided at no cost. Details of the analysis include compiler signature, presence of any significant subsystem such as CICS and an estimated line of code. Later compilers provide more accurate signature information however all levels of COBOL are supported including ANS and OS/VS. The actual number of lines of code produced may vary slightly but willl not affect the recovery cost.

The cost of a full recovery is based on the amount of technician time to fully recover and validate the resulting source code which will be documented in the Statement of Work. The average charge for a full recovery is $2500 per program. The averge time to deliver is 3-5 business days.

For full recovery requests in excess of 25 programs, one or more recovery technicians will be assigned to the work request for a stated number of days at a rate of $200/hour.
