Create a Project

Walks you through the process of creating an Enterprise Developer project for the ScheduleDemo application and its service interface.
Restriction: This topic applies to Windows environments (local development) only.

Create the ProgramSOAP Project

Create a project for your service interface, and add files to the project. This section assumes that Enterprise Developer is started. If you need instructions to get it started, see To start Enterprise Developer. We also assume that the Application Explorer view is showing in Eclipse. In the Application Explorer view, you should see the Enterprise Developer@Windowsn system. If the system is not shown, to load it:

  1. Right-click in the Application Explorer view, and then 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 Application Explorer view.
  4. Right-click Enterprise Developer Projects; then click Load Application.

To create the project:

  1. In Eclipse, click File > New > Other.

    This opens the New dialog box.

  2. Expand the Micro Focus COBOL folder, and then click COBOL Project.
  3. Click Next.

    This opens the New COBOL Project Wizard.

  4. In the Project name field, type ProgramSOAP.
  5. Check Use default location; then click Finish.

    The Application Explorer view now shows the ProgramSOAP project under the Enterprise Developer@Windowsversion > Enterprise Development Projects node.

  6. From the Application Explorer view, right-click the ProgramSOAP project and select Import from the context menu.

    This opens the Import dialog box.

  7. Expand General and click File System.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Click the Browse button that corresponds to the From directory field, and browse to the %PUBLIC%\Documents\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\Samples\Interface Mapping Toolkit\ServiceInterfaces\ScheduleDemo directory.
  10. Click OK.
  11. On the list of files, check all files except the Readme XML files.
  12. Click Finish.

    This adds the files to the project and builds the project automatically.

Set the COBOL Build Configuration

This IMTK project requires the build action to produce a dynamic link library (.dll) file for the schedule program. To ensure this behavior:

  1. In the Application Explorer view, right-click the ProgramSOAP project; then select Properties from the context menu.
  2. Expand Micro Focus > Build Configurations; then click COBOL.
  3. From the Target Type drop-down list, select All Native Library Files; then click OK.
