To run a COBOL application on your local machine

Ensure that your project is highlighted in the COBOL Explorer view.

  1. Click Run > Run Configurations.
  2. Expand the appropriate application type and select the configuration you want to use.
  3. Specify the run-time configuration for the application. For example you can specify such as the search order for called programs, environment variables, and input/output settings.
    If you are running a COBOL JVM application
    Select the Classpath tab and check that your preferred runtime system library is selected under the User Entries option. If not, click Advanced > Add Library and select it.
  4. Click Run.
Important: This run-time configuration overrides any run-time settings you have configured for the project in Project > Properties.
