Set Up the ProgramREST Project

Walks you through the process of creating a Visual COBOL project for the ScheduleDemo demonstration application and its REST Web service.

Create the ProgramREST project

  1. In Eclipse, click File > New > COBOL Project.
  2. In the Project name field, type ProgramREST.
  3. Check Use default location; then click Finish.
    Note: If Eclipse prompts you to open the COBOL perspective, click Open Perspective.

    The COBOL Explorer now shows the ProgramREST project.

Set build configuration properties ProgramREST

When Eclipse builds the ProgramREST project, you want the build action to produce a dynamic link library (.dll) file. To ensure this behavior, you need to set the Build Configuration to the All Native Library Files target type:

  1. In the COBOL Explorer, right-click the ProgramREST project; then select Properties from the context menu.
  2. Expand Micro Focus > Build Configurations; then click Link.
  3. From the Target Type drop-down list, select All Native Library Files; then click Apply and Close.

Add ScheduleDemo demonstration files to the project

  1. From the COBOL Explorer, right-click the ProgramREST project and select Import > Import from the context menu.

    This opens the Import dialog box.

  2. Expand General and click File System.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Click the Browse button that corresponds to the From directory field, and browse to the %PUBLIC%\Documents\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\Samples\Interface Mapping Toolkit\ServiceInterfaces\ScheduleDemo directory.
  5. Click Select Folder.
  6. On the list of files, check all files except the Readme XML files.
  7. Click Finish.

    This adds the files to the project and builds the project automatically.
