You debug and run a containerized native COBOL application in much the same way as you would debug and run a non-containerized native COBOL application but there are a few additional or different steps to consider. The process is as follows:
See Running the Container Demonstration for the Visual COBOL Base Image for more information.
Visual COBOL can create a template Dockerfile for you or you can use your own if you already have one.
See To add a Dockerfile to a native COBOL project for more information.
See To specify container information in debug and run configurations for more information.
See To specify the type of container to use for more information.
See Debugging COBOL applications and To run a COBOL application on your local machine for information on the debugging process in general, and To debug or run a native COBOL application in a container, To debug or run a containerized native COBOL application running on Enterprise Server and To debug or run a containerized native COBOL application running under Kubernetes for container-specific debugging information.
See To build an image for deployment for more information.
