To convert a PL/I local project to a PL/I remote project

Restriction: This functionality requires Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components.
  1. While in the Team Developer perspective, click File > Import.
  2. Expand the Micro Focus folder in the Import dialog box, select Convert Local Micro Focus Projects to Remote Projects , then click Next.

    The Import and Convert Local Micro Focus Projects to Remote dialog box is displayed.

  3. Click Browse, then select the workspace folder containing the project to convert.
    Note: The project being converted should not already reside in the current workspace.
  4. Check the project(s) to convert.
  5. Select the remote file system to use to interact with the remote host, and then click Next.
    Restriction: The Classic Data File Tools do not work with files that are part of a remote project created using the Remote System Explorer (RSE) connection type.
  6. If you chose Network File System (Samba, NFS), in the Location field, specify the path with which to locate the project on the local machine.
    Tip: Select Use default location to use your current workspace.
  7. In the Remote settings section, in the Connection name field, choose the remote connection.
    Note: Only existing connections using your chosen file system are displayed; 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 one.
  8. In the Remote location field, enter the location of the project on the remote host. You can use the Browse dialog box 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.

  9. Click Finish

    This creates the project and displays it in the Application Explorer view.
