To create a remote PL/I project

Restriction: This functionality requires Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components.
  1. While in the Team Developer perspective, click File > New > Other.
  2. Expand Micro Focus PL/I, and then click Remote PL/I Project.
  3. Click Next.
  4. In the New Remote PL/I Project wizard, enter a project name.
  5. Specify whether the project should use the Remote file system (RSE) or the Network file system (SAMBA, NFS, etc...) file system to interact with the remote host.
    • The Remote System Explorer (RSE) is a toolkit in the Eclipse IDE Workbench that enables you to connect and work with a variety of remote systems.
      Restriction: The Classic Data File Tools do not work with files that are part of a remote project created using the Remote System Explorer (RSE) connection type.
    • The Network File System (NFS) protocol enables a client machine to access files over a network connection in a similar manner to how local storage on the client machine is accessed.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select or browse for a project template and click Next.
  8. In the Remote settings section, choose the Connection name from the list. Alternatively, click New Connection and use the New Connection wizard to create a new connection.
  9. In the Remote location field, enter the location of the project on the remote host. You can use the Browse dialog box to browse the remote host's file system.
    Note: For a network file system such as NFS or Samba, the Remote location value should be the UNIX or Linux representation of the path as specified in Location. For example, a location of X:NFS-mounted-drive location\project name can be represented by a remote location of /home/users/my-folder.
  10. Click Finish.

    This creates the project and displays it in the Application Explorer view.
