Walks you through the process of creating a deployment folder and configuring ESDEMO to use it.
Restriction: This topic applies only when the Enterprise Server feature is enabled.
To successfully deploy and run or debug a Java service interface, you must have an
enterprise server instance started in
Enterprise Server. For these tutorials, we provide the ESDEMO

Note: The default deployment folder used by
Enterprise Server is a subfolder to your
Visual COBOL installation folder. If you have Administrator privileges to the
Visual COBOL installation structure, or if you started
Visual COBOL using
Run as Administrator, you are not required to complete this section of the tutorial. Otherwise, you must complete this section to create and configure an alternative deployment folder.
