Sample Programs

We supply a number of demonstration programs to help you better understand some of the concepts involved when working with COBOL projects in Eclipse.

Windows: You use the Samples Browser tool to access the available samples. For instructions on accessing the Samples Browser, see To start the Samples Browser.

The demonstration programs are installed in subfolders under %PUBLIC%\Documents\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\Samples by default. On older versions of Windows the samples might be installed in a different folder, such as for Windows XP, C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\Samples.

UNIX: The sample programs are contained in a .jar file that you import into your Eclipse workspace. There are also several demonstrations that we supply that contain a makefile or scripts to enable compilation from a command line.
