They had much more success outsourcing their Java development.

Before that, the company tried to re-write the entire application in Java, but that failed too. They have written java 'wrappers' around all the cobol modules so they can be called and used in more modern environments (necessary for user interfaces and other interfaces) but the guts of the functionality is still a massive pile of Cobol code.
