To prepare your application for use in a non-distributed environment:

  1. Code your application as usual, or use an existing application.
  2. As needed, include the appropriate library routines or fields described in the section Coding for the Web Runtime.

    Be sure to refer to the special coding considerations listed at the end of that section.

  3. Compile your programs with ACUCOBOL-GT.

    The resulting object file can be executed from within a browser on any Windows machine that has a Web runtime component installed.

  4. Configure the Web runtime if desired.

    This procedure is described in the section Configuring the Web Runtime. Note that you cannot access a configuration file on the client machine.

  5. Package your COBOL objects and resources into a single library file. You can also bundle configuration files, bitmaps, and ".xfd" files into the package, if desired.

    This procedure is described in Packaging Your Application and Resources. (Please note that if you have a single-object application and you are not using a separate configuration file, bitmaps, or Acu4GL, there is no need to package your application into a library.)

  6. Include the library file or single object in your Web site as described in Invoking Your COBOL Application with the Web Runtime.
