Tutorial: Generate and Compile the Application

Generate the BLDRAPPL application in AppMaster Builder, and automatically compile in Enterprise Developer.
Restriction: This topic applies only when the AppMaster Builder AddPack has been installed, and applies only to Windows platforms.

We set the generation options for the BLDRAPPL application when we defined the application in AppMaster Builder. BLDRAPPL is configured to put generated code into a specified Enterprise Developer project, where it is compiled automatically.

Generate and compile BLDRAPPL
  1. From the Project Explorer, expand c:\amb_tutorials\BLDRAPPL\dev1.
  2. Right-click BLDRAPPL; then select Generate Application.
  3. To watch the generation processing, click Window > Show View > Console.
View generated code
  1. In Eclipse, open the COBOL Explorer.
  2. Expand the AMB_BLDRAPPL project.
  3. Expand COBOL Programs, Copybooks, and BMS Source Files.
  4. Double-click an object in any of these folders to see the generated source code.
This completes the series of AppMaster Builder tutorials. From here, you can:
  • Debug the application from the Enterprise Developer COBOL perspective. See Debugging in Eclipse for more information.
  • Deploy and run the application on Enterprise Server. See Deploying COBOL Applications for more information.
  • Deploy the application to the mainframe.
