To create a remote native COBOL 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 Project, and then click Next.
  4. In the Remote COBOL 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.
  6. Select the required project template on which to base your project, and click Next.
    Note: By default, two templates are available for you to choose from: Micro Focus template [32 bit] or Micro Focus template [64 bit]; 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 Team Developer view.

To change any of the connection settings afterwards, open the Remote Systems Explorer perspective, right-click on the connection and select Properties > Connector Services.

Important: If you use one of the non-Micro Focus connection types (for example 'Linux' or 'Unix') from the Remote System Explorer perspective to create a connection, choose SSH as the file system provider if you intend to use the connection for remote projects whose file system is RSE. You do this by selecting ssh.files in the Configuration box at the Files step of the wizard. Selecting a different file system provider will cause performance and stability problems. The remote host must have SSH installed and enabled.

RSE is a feature supplied by the Eclipse Foundation. Extensive documentation on RSE, including architecture, API, tutorials and reference can be found on the Eclipse website.
