Set Up the LoanDemo Project

Guides you through the process of using the provided CICS Web services demonstration files to create the LoanDemo project used in this tutorial.
  1. Using Windows File Explorer or at a command prompt, create a project directory named LoanDemo under c:\tutorials\CICS.
  2. In Windows File Explorer, copy everything in the CICSWebServicesProjectTemplate folder containing your extracted CICS Web services demonstration files, and paste it into the new LoanDemo project directory.
  3. From the Visual Studio main menu, click File > Open > Project/Solution.
  4. Browse to the new LoanDemo project directory, and select the CWSProject.cblproj project file. This starts the Solution Explorer.

    Here, you rename the project to match the name of the service interface you are going to create. This is not mandatory in general, but done here to differentiate between tutorial projects.

  5. In the Solution Explorer, right-click the CWSProject project, and select Rename from the context menu.
  6. Type LoanDemo, and then press Enter.
