Additional Information on Using Containers for COBOL Application Development

All of the concepts that are outlined in this section are illustrated in the container demonstrations. These demonstrations are supplied with Enterprise Developer and illustrate how to build a range of images to perform different tasks, from being used as a base image for running Enterprise Developer to debugging a sample CICS application. See Container Demonstrations for a list of all of the supplied container demonstrations as well as descriptions of the files in them.

Note: A separate document, Best Practices for Moving Your COBOL Applications to Containers, is available that describes best practices that Micro Focus recommends you adopt when moving an existing COBOL application to run in a containerized environment. See Micro Focus: Best Practices for Moving Your COBOL Applications to Containers for more information.
