Create a COBOL JVM Project

The first step in creating an application is to create a project. From the IDE take the following steps:
  1. In the Team Developer perspective, click File > New > Other .
  2. Expand Micro Focus COBOL, and then click COBOL JVM Project.
  3. Click Next.
  4. In the Project Name field type HelloJVMworld.
  5. Select the location to save your project. By default, the project will be created in the workspace that you selected when you started the Eclipse session. You can change this by unchecking the Use default location checkbox and selecting a different location.
  6. Click Finish.
You have now created a COBOL JVM project and it is displayed in the Application Explorer view.
Tip: As well as the .cobolBuild, .cobolProj, and .project files that are automatically created with a COBOL project, there is also a .classpath file. This is an XML file that contains all the paths to user-defined classes and packages. By default these files aren't listed, but you can show them by opening the Application Explorer menu, selecting Customize View, and deselecting the .*resources option.
