Running an application that you develop in Eclipse requires that you first create a launch configuration. To create a run
configuration and run the application:
Select your project in the
COBOL Explorer view and from the main menu click
Run Configurations dialog box is displayed.
Create a new launch configuration in one of the following ways:
This creates a new COBOL launch configuration with
tictac loaded as the project to use and
New_Configuration.bin/tictac.exe (Windows) or
New_Configuration.bin/tictac (UNIX) as the main program to run.
- Double-click the
COBOL Application tree item, or
- Click the
COBOL Application tree item, and then click
(New launch configuration).
Name field, type a name for the launch configuration.
In this instance, just the name of the project will suffice, but you can have multiple launch configurations, with multiple
uses, for one project, and in those case you may need to be more descriptive with the name.
This starts the application by opening a console window. Follow the instructions in the window to play the game.
To stop the application, close the console window.
