Restriction: This functionality requires
Visual COBOL Development Hub.
The Remote System Explorer (RSE) is a perspective and toolkit in the Eclipse IDE Workbench that allows you to connect and
work with a variety of remote systems.
With the predefined plug-ins you can:
- look at remote file systems
- transfer files between hosts
- perform remote searches
- execute commands
- work with processes
Important: If you use one of the non-Micro Focus connection types (for example 'Linux' or 'Unix') from the Remote System Explorer perspective
to create a connection, choose SSH as the file system provider if you intend to use the connection for remote projects whose
file system is RSE. You do this by selecting
ssh.files in the
Configuration box at the Files step of the wizard. Selecting a different file system provider will cause performance and stability problems.
The remote host must have SSH installed and enabled.
RSE is a feature supplied by the Eclipse Foundation. Extensive documentation on RSE, including architecture, API, tutorials
and reference can be found on
the Eclipse website.
The following tools do not work with files that are part of a remote project created using the Remote System Explorer (RSE)
- BMS Painter
- BMS Compiler
- All Classic Data File Tools
- IMS Database editor and segment layout editor
- Mainframe Assembler compiler
