Set Eclipse and Interface Mapper preferences required to complete these tutorials.
Restriction: This topic applies to Windows environments (local development) only.

Set Interface Mapper Preferences

Before you begin the tutorials, you need to set the properties for the Interface Mapper to show both the Reusable Fields and COBOL Assignments panes. You use one or both of these panes while working through the tutorials.

  1. From the Main Menu in Eclipse, click Window > Preferences.
  2. Expand Micro Focus > Service Interfaces; then click Interface Mapper.
  3. Check both Show Reusable Fields pane and Show COBOL Assignments pane; then click OK.
    Note: If a Preference Synchronization dialog box appears, click No - Preferences will be saved locally.; then click OK.

Set Build Automatically

In Eclipse, you can set your project to build automatically each time a change is made to the project. These tutorials assume that Build Automatically is turned on. To ensure that this is the case:

  1. From the Main Menu, click Project.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If the Build Automatically menu option has a check mark to its left, it is already turned on. No further action is required.
    • If the Build Automatically menu option does not have a check mark to its left, click the option to turn it on.
