Deploy the COBOL JVM Runtime

Deploy the COBOL JVM runtime with the SQL runtime required to run the application.
The Deploying an Enterprise JavaBean Containing JVM COBOL to a JBoss Application Server tutorial walks you through deploying the COBOL JVM Runtime System using a per-bean model. The COBOL JVM Runtime System library that is added to the TemperatureConverterPrj deployment project as a deployment assembly contains several .jar files comprising the runtime. In this tutorial, the mfsqljvm.jar file makes up the SQL runtime. The following instructions enhance the instructions provided in the original tutorial by describing additional changes needed to deploy the SQL runtime using a shared model for JBoss AS 7.1:
  1. At a command prompt or using Explorer, go to your %JBOSS_HOME%\modules\com\microfocus directory.
  2. Create a subdirectory named openesql.
  3. Under the new openesql subdirectory, create a subdirectory named main.
  4. Copy mfsqljvm.jar from the %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\bin directory to the %JBOSS_HOME%\modules\com\microfocus\openesql\main directory.
  5. In the %JBOSS_HOME%\modules\com\microfocus\openesql\main directory, create a new module.xml file that contains the following code, which names the SQL runtime mfsqljvm.jar file as a resource:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <module xmlns="urn:jboss:module:1.1" name="com.microfocus.openesql">
        <module name="javaee.api"/>
        <module name="com.microfocus.cobol.runtime"/>
        <resource-root path="mfsqljvm.jar"/>

    Unlike the non-SQL version of this tutorial, with SQL you must update the MANIFEST.FM file to list the SQL runtime namespace as a dependency.

  6. In the Eclipse Navigator pane, navigate to TemperatureConverterPrj > WebContent > META-INF; then double-click MANIFEST.MF to open it in the editor.
  7. Either add a Dependencies: line or edit the existing Dependencies: line to read as follows:
    Dependencies: com.microfocus.cobol.runtime, com.microfocus.openesql
  8. Save the file and close the editor.
