Creating an Eclipse Project for the RM/Panels Application

The first task is to create a project.
  1. Launch Visual COBOL. Specify a path for the Eclipse workspace when prompted.

    If this is the first time you start Eclipse, the IDE displays the Eclipse Welcome page. Click Open COBOL Perspective which is the default perspective in Visual COBOL.

    If the IDE does not start in the COBOL perspective, to change to it, click Window > Perspective > Open Perspective > Other, click COBOL, and then click Open.

    Perspectives are an Eclipse concept and they include the views, menus and options relevant to your activity. The COBOL perspective shows the COBOL Explorer, Outline, and Console views, among others. The perspective is customizable, so you can choose your own views.

  2. Select File > New > COBOL Project.

    The New COBOL Project dialog box is displayed.

  3. In the Project name field, type vc_qdemo.
  4. Click Finish.

    The project is created, and displayed in the COBOL Explorer.
