To update service interfaces with source code changes

Restriction: This topic applies only when the Enterprise Server feature is enabled.

After generating a service interface and then subsequently making changes to the COBOL linkage section used to generate it, you should then use the RefreshAnnotations feature to update the service interface with the changes.

  1. In Solution Explorer, right-click your project; then click Refresh Annotations for Services.
    Tip: On the Refresh Annotations dialog box, a red exclamation point icon Annotations Exclamation Point appears next to programs and copybooks that have had code changes since generating a service interface; a green check mark icon Annotations Check appears next to programs and copybooks that remain unchanged since generating a service interface. You should refresh annotations for each source file that shows Annotations Exclamation Point.
  2. Click each program or copybook you want to refresh, or click Auto Select to select all that contain code that is out of date.
  3. Click Refresh; then click Close.
