Creating the Project

Start by creating a COBOL 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, click Window > Perspective > Open Perspective > Other, click COBOL, and then click OK.
  2. In the COBOL perspective, click File > New > Other.

    This opens the New dialog box.

  3. Click Micro Focus COBOL > COBOL Project.
  4. Click Next.

    This opens the New COBOL Project dialog box.

  5. In the Project name field, type ActionExample.
  6. Click Finish.
