64-bit applications in the Java environment

Java COBOL applications running on a 64-bit platform can use either the 32-bit or the 64-bit JVM.

To set the platform to 64-bit, follow this procedure, which changes the JRE Library specified in the JVM Build Path:
  1. Right-click the project on the COBOL Explorer; then select Properties.
  2. Expand Micro Focus; then click JVM Build Path.
  3. On the Libraries tab, click Add library.
  4. Select JRE System Library; then click Next.
  5. Select Alternate JRE.
  6. If your 64-bit JRE is listed on the drop-down list, select it; if not, click Installed JREs and use the Preferences dialog box to add or find your 64-bit JRE library.
  7. On the JRE System Library wizard, click Finish to add the JRE library to the JVM Build Path.
    Note: Optionally, use the Order and Export tab to remove any unwanted JREs or to change the order in which JREs are accessed.
