Demonstration Application

Describes the ScheduleDemo application used in this tutorial.

The COBOL application that you use in this tutorial is the ScheduleDemo demonstration application. The application executables are installed with Visual COBOL in the %PUBLIC%\Documents\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\Samples\Interface Mapping Toolkit\ServiceInterfaces\ScheduleDemo directory by default.

The ScheduleDemo demonstration application is a system for scheduling and viewing appointments. The application uses the following source and data members:

  • schedule.cbl
  • common.cpy
  • common_78.cpy
  • common_ex.cpy
  • common_ws.cpy
  • consultants.cpy
  • customerinfo.cpy
  • stores.cpy
  • appoint.dat
  • consultants.dat
  • customers.dat

Using the application, you can either schedule a new appointment, or look up an existing appointment. We recommend that you review the application source code to become familiar with how it works.
