Set the OpenESQL Assistant Type COBOL Variable

Provides the steps required to set configuration options for the OpenESQL Assistant.

You can configure several features within OpenESQL Assistant, but for the purposes of this tutorial, you change just the value of the Type COBOL Variable setting. This setting determines the method used at run time to resolve host variable definitions. By setting this option to SQL Type, your compiled application communicates with the OpenESQL ODBC run-time, improving performance.

  1. In Eclipse, click Window > Preferences; then expand Micro Focus > Database and select OpenESQL Assistant.
  2. Change the value of Type COBOL Variable from Standard to SQL Type.
  3. Be sure Mode is set to ODBC; then click Apply and Close.
