To create a remote COBOL copybook project

Restriction: This feature requires that Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components is installed on the remote machine.
  1. While in the Team Developer perspective, click File > New > Other.
  2. Expand Micro Focus COBOL.
  3. Click Remote COBOL Copybook Project, and then click Next.

    The Remote COBOL Copybook Project wizard appears.

  4. In the Remote COBOL Copybook Project wizard, type a project name.
  5. Choose whether to use a remote file system (RSE) or a network file system (Samba or NFS) to interact with the remote host, then click Next.
    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:
    • All Classic Data File Tools
    • All Data File Tools (Technology Preview)

    The Network File System (NFS) protocol allows 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. Select the required project template, then click Next.
  7. If you chose the network file system (Samba or NFS), in the Location field, specify the path to the project.
    Tip: Select Use default location to use your current workspace.
  8. In the Remote settings section, in the Connection name field, choose the remote host.
    Note: If the remote host connection is not listed when you click the Connection name field, click New Connection and use the New Connection wizard to create a new connection.
  9. In the Remote location field, enter the location of the project on the remote host. Click Browse to browse the remote host's file system.

    For a network file system 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.

  10. Click Finish.

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