    • Click Select a COBOL project; and then type the project name in the Project receiving generated client field, or use the Select button to specify the project.
    • Click Create a new COBOL project; then provide a project name and location using the New COBOL Project dialog box.

      2. In the JSON file field, type the path and file name for the JSON file. Alternatively, click Browse and navigate to the JSON file.
      3. In the String size field, type the default string size to use for unbounded strings.

      Note: The location you can browse to find the WSDL or JSON files is consistent with the project type, that is, a remote project can only browse the remote machine.
