Software requirements

Note: This product includes OpenSSL version 1.0.2j.

The setup file will check your machine for whether the prerequisite software is installed and will install any missing prerequisites and the product components.

Eclipse requirements

  • The setup file installs Enterprise Developer and the 64-bit Eclipse 4.6.0.

    Some earlier versions of Eclipse are also supported. See Installing Enterprise Developer into other instances of Eclipse in the Advanced Installation Tasks.

    Note: If you are installing Enterprise Developer into Eclipse 4.5, or 4.6, you must install the Eclipse Target Management plugins into the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers package (32-bit):
    1. Click Help > Install New Software in Eclipse and add a new repository for the location
    2. Expand RSE 3.8 Main Features, check RSE Terminals UI (Deprecated) and complete the installation of the plugin.
  • Enterprise Developer installs fully only on 64-bit Windows platforms. On 32-bit Windows, the setup file does not install some of the components. See Issues with the Installation in Known Issues and Restrictions.
  • Enterprise Developer supports both the 32-bit and the 64-bit Eclipse. You can use the 64-bit Eclipse to create both 32-bit and 64-bit applications.

Software requirements on Windows

  • Oracle's Java Platform (64-bit) version 1.8.92 or above is required to run the Eclipse IDE. Java 7 and 8 (32 or 64-bit versions) are supported for executing JVM COBOL code and for native COBOL and Java interoperability. You can download Oracle's Java EE from Oracle's web site and install it anywhere on your machine.
    Note: If Java 7 is installed on your machine, you can skip installing Java 8. Run the setup file with the skipjre=1 command line option to do this.
  • Enterprise Developer requires:
    • A 32-bit Java installation if using the 32-bit Eclipse.
    • A 64-bit Java installation if using the 64-bit Eclipse.
  • The setup file also installs .NET Framework v4.6.2 and the Microsoft's Visual C++ 2010 and 2012 Redistributables.

See Java Support Restrictions in the product help for any considerations when using Eclipse and Java.

Other Requirements

Important: This release requires version 10000.2.990 or later of the Micro Focus License Administration tool. For local servers, you do not need to install it separately, as the setup file installs a new Enterprise Developer client and a new licensing server on the same machine.

If you have a network server, you must update the license server before installing the product as the client is not able to communicate with license servers of versions older than 10000.2.660. On Windows, you can check the version of your license server by clicking Help > About in the Micro Focus License Administration tool. To check the version of the license server on UNIX, run /var/microfocuslicensing/bin/mfcesver or /var/microfocuslicensing/bin/

You can download the new version of the license server software from the Micro Focus SupportLine Web site:
