What is Remote System Explorer?

The Remote System Explorer (RSE) is a perspective and toolkit in the Eclipse IDE Workbench that allows you to connect and work with a variety of remote systems. With the predefined plug-ins you can:
  • look at remote file systems
  • transfer files between hosts
  • perform remote searches
  • execute commands
  • work with processes

The RSE plugins are supplied, along with the Eclipse IDE and Micro Focus COBOL plugins, in a zipped file in the Remote Development Option Addpack that is installed on your remote server. Installing the zipped contents onto you local client machine will install the RSE plugins.

Extensive documentation on RSE, including architecture, API, tutorials and reference can be found on the RSE User Guide website.
