To convert a PL/I local project to a PL/I remote project

Restriction: This functionality requires Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components.
  1. While in the Team Developer perspective, click File > Import.
  2. Expand the Micro Focus folder in the Import dialog box, select Convert Local Micro Focus Projects to Remote Projects , then click Next.

    The Import and Convert Local Micro Focus Projects to Remote dialog box appears.

  3. Click Browse, and select the directory containing the project, then check the project to convert or click Select All if you want to import multiple projects.
    Note: The project being imported should not be in the current workspace.
  4. Choose whether to use a remote file system (RSE) or a network file system (Samba or NFS) to interact with the remote host.
    • 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.
      Restriction: The following tools do not work with files that are part of a remote project created using the Remote System Explorer (RSE) connection type:
      • All Classic Data File Tools
      • All Data File Tools (Technology Preview)
    • The Network File System (NFS) protocol allows a client machine to access files over a network connection in a similar manner to how local storage on the client machine is accessed.
  5. Click Next.
    • If you specify a network file system (Samba, NFS) project:
      1. Check the Use default location to populate the Location field with the default workspace path and project name. Alternatively, type the full project path in the Location field or click Browse to select the location.
      2. In the Remote location field, type the path of the project on the remote host. Click Browse to browse the remote host's file system.
        Note: For network file systems such as NFS or Samba, the Remote Location value should be the UNIX/Linux representation of the path as specified in Location. For example, a location of X:NFS-mounted-drive location\project name should be represented by a remote location of /home/usersmy-folder.
    • If you specify a remote file system (RSE) project:
      1. In the Remote location field, type the path of the project on the remote host. Click Browse to browse the remote host's file system.
  6. Click Finish

    This creates the project and displays it in the Team Developer Tree view.
