To create a remote COBOL copybook project

Restriction: This feature requires that Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components is installed on the remote machine.
  1. While in the Team Developer perspective, click File > New > Other.
  2. Expand Micro Focus COBOL.
  3. Expand Remote Projects, click Remote COBOL Copybook Project, and then click Next.

    The Remote COBOL Copybook Project wizard appears.

  4. In the Remote COBOL Copybook Project wizard, type a project name.
  5. In the Choose file system field, select the connection type with which to interact with the remote host, and then click Next.

    The Network File System (NFS) protocol allows a client machine to access files over a network connection in a similar manner to how local storage on the client machine is accessed.

  6. Select the required project template on which to base your project, and click Next.
    Note: By default, one template is available for you to choose: Micro Focus template; others may be available if the template preferences have been previously configured. Alternatively, click Browse for template and select another template.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  10. Click Finish.

    The project is created and appears in the Application Explorer view.
