To create a new file

To add new files to the project, click File > New and specify the type of file you want to create - such as a COBOL program or a copybook.

If you are creating a new COBOL class or an interface in a COBOL JVM Project, you also need to specify the following details:

  1. Specify the path to the source folder in which you want to create the class or the interface.
  2. Specify the name of the package.
  3. Specify a name for the class or the interface.
  4. Specify a modifier - either public or internal (visible only inside the package) and, additionally, for classes check either abstract, final, or static.
  5. If you are creating a class, optionally click Browse next to the Superclass field and select an appropriate class.
  6. Click Add and specify the interfaces the new class or interface inherits.
  7. Click Finish.
