To create a PL/I remote mainframe project

Restriction: This functionality requires Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components.
  1. While in the Team Developer perspective, click File > New > Other.
  2. Expand Micro Focus PL/I, and then click Remote Mainframe PL/I Project.
  3. Click Next.
  4. In the New Remote Mainframe PL/I Project wizard, enter a project name.
  5. Choose whether to use a Remote file system (RSE) or a Network file system (SAMBA, NFS, etc...) 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:
      • BMS Painter
      • BMS Compiler
      • All Classic Data File Tools
      • All Data File Tools (Technology Preview)
      • IMS Database editor and segment layout editor
      • Mainframe Assembler compiler
    • The Network File System (SAMBA, NFS) protocol enables a client machine to access files over a network connection in a similar manner to how local storage on the client machine is accessed.
  6. If you have created your own PL/I project templates, you can select one of them from the Select a project template box. Alternatively, check Browse for template and click Browse to navigate to the location of the template and select it; then click Next.
    • If you specify a network file system (Samba or NFS) project:
      1. Check 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/users/my-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.
  7. Click Finish.

    The project is created and appears in the Team Developer Tree view.
