Create a Project

You create a project that comprises all the parts of your application. In this case, the Assembler source and BMS files.

  1. Create a working directory on your machine, for example c:\tutorials.
  2. Start Eclipse with workspace directory c:\tutorials.
  3. On the Welcome page, click Open Team Developer Perspective.

    In the perspective, you should see the Enterprise Developer@Windowsn system in the Team Developer Tree View . If the system is not shown, to load it:

    1. Right-click in the Team Developer Tree View and click Add System(s).
    2. In the Add System(s) dialog box, select ED System and click OK.
    3. Expand the top-level Enterprise Developer entry in the Team Developer Tree View .
    4. Right-click Enterprise Developer Projects; then click Load Application.
  4. Expand the top-level Enterprise Developer entry in the Team Developer Tree View .
  5. Right-click Enterprise Developer Projects in the Team Developer Tree View , and click New COBOL Project > Mainframe COBOL Project.
  6. Specify the project name AACT and click Finish.

    Eclipse creates the project in the c:\tutorials\AACT directory, and the Team Developer Tree view shows the AACT project.

  7. Right-click the AACT project in the Team Developer Tree view, and click New > Folder > Folder.
  8. Specify system as the folder name, and click Finish.
  9. Create another folder, loadlib, in the same way.

    This is the folder for the files generated by your project. You now need to configure the project to produce the generated files in the loadlib subfolder.

  10. Right-click the project in the Team Developer Tree view, and click Properties.
  11. Expand Micro Focus > Build Configurations and click COBOL.
  12. In the Output Path field, click Browse, select the loadlib folder, and click OK.
  13. Click Apply and then click OK to save your changes.
