Java/COBOL Application Launcher

Restriction: This topic only applies to local and remote development on Linux and UNIX platforms.

The Java/COBOL application launcher, cobjrun, is used to launch:

  • Native COBOL applications calling Java
  • JVM COBOL applications
  • Java applications which call native COBOL from a COBOL Run-Time environment

cobjrun is the trigger for cobjrun32 and cobjrun64 and should be used instead of your usual Java application launcher as it sets up your environment to correctly manage both the COBOL run-time system and the Java Virtual Machine.
