Using the Container Demonstrations

Visual COBOL includes a number of container demonstrations that illustrate typical uses of containers with COBOL applications.

These container demonstrations include Dockerfiles and related batch/script files to simplify the process of running them, and this documentation contains descriptions of the files that comprise the container demonstrations. After running the container demonstrations and reading this documentation to help you familiarize yourself with how the demonstrations work you will have all the information you need to enable you to build and use images for use with your own COBOL applications.

The container demonstrations are supplied in the file which is accessible from the same place that you accessed the Visual COBOL installation file. Unzip into a folder of your choice to create a series of folders containing the container demonstrations.

Each container demonstration includes the following:

See Supplied Container Demonstrations for information on the containers demonstrations that are available.
