Create a project

You create a project that comprises all the parts of your application, for example the COBOL source and BMS files. You build the demonstration application in Enterprise Developer, and deploy and run it on an enterprise server region.

  1. Start Enterprise Developer. If you need instructions, see To start Enterprise Developer.
  2. When prompted, specify c:\tutorials as your workspace location.
  3. In Eclipse, be sure that the Team Developer perspective is the active Eclipse perspective and the Enterprise Developer system is loaded into the Application Explorer view.
  4. From the Application Explorer view, expand the Enterprise Developer system.
  5. Right-click Enterprise Development Projects and select New COBOL Project > Mainframe COBOL Project from the context menu.
  6. Type ACCT into the Project Name field.

    The default location for storing new projects is the workspace you specified when you started Eclipse. If you wanted to change this, you could uncheck Use default location and specify a different location; however, you use the default location in this tutorial.

  7. Click Finish.

    The ACCT project is created and appears in the Application Explorer view. By default, its COBOL dialect is Enterprise COBOL for z/OS and the character set is EBCDIC.
