Software requirements

Note: This product includes OpenSSL version 1.0.1p.

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 Eclipse 4.4.2.

    See Installing Enterprise Developer into other instances of Eclipse for instructions on how to install Enterprise Developer into other instances of Eclipse installed on your machine.

    Note: If you are installing Enterprise Developer into Eclipse 4.5, 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 your Eclipse 4.5 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 does not support the 64-bit Eclipse. You can, however, use the 32-bit Eclipse to create both 32-bit and 64-bit applications.
  • Enterprise Developer requires a 32-bit Java installation.

Software requirements on Windows

  • Oracle's Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) Java 7 or Java 8 is required to execute COBOL JVM 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, to skip installing Java 8, run the Setup file with the skipjre=1 command line option.
  • The setup file also installs .NET Framework v4.5.2 and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 and 2012 Redistributables.

See the Java Support Considerations for the Eclipse IDE in the Known Issues and Restrictions section in your product help for considerations that apply to using the Eclipse IDE 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:
