Restriction: This topic applies only when the Enterprise Server feature is enabled.

Create a SOAP Web Service from the Schedule COBOL program.

  1. From the Solution Explorer, right-click the ProgramSOAP project; then click Add > New Item.
  2. Expand COBOL; then select Native.
  3. In the center pane, click Service Interface.
  4. In the Name field, type MakeCheckAppt; then click Add.
  5. Select Web Service as your type of interface, SOAP as your transport type, and COBOL Program as your type of source; then click OK.

At this point, Visual Studio adds the MakeCheckAppt service interface to the Solution Explorer and invokes the Interface Mapper. You are ready to define the details of the Web service.
