Selecting a Project Template

When creating a new project, choose a template based on the type of application you want to create.

To access the available project types, click either File > New in the COBOL or the PL/I perspective, or by clicking File > New > Other and choosing one of the templates prefixed with Micro Focus.

If you are in the Team Developer perspective, click File > New > Other and choose one of the templates prefixed with Micro Focus. Alternatively, you can right-click Enterprise Development Projects in the Team Developer Tree view and choose from New COBOL Project or New PLI Project.

Enterprise Developer provides the following project types:

Project Type Created Using Wizard Project is used
COBOL COBOL Project To develop a COBOL application on the local machine that is compiled to native file formats (such as .int and .gnt).
COBOL JVM COBOL JVM Project To develop a COBOL application compiled to Java byte code.
COBOL Remote Remote COBOL Project

Set COBOL compilation target to Native code.

To develop a COBOL application on a remote UNIX or Linux machine that is compiled to native file formats (such as .int and .gnt).
COBOL Remote JVM Remote COBOL Project

Set COBOL compilation target to JVM byte code.
