Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This document describes how to point to copy file directories (or folders) within a Net Express project using the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The IDE is a graphical user interface (GUI) provided for developing, compiling and debugging COBOL-oriented applications. This is a four step process.

1. Select Project Properties.
2. Select the Environment for the IDE.
3. Define the Concatenated Copy File Directories.
4. View the Project with Copy Files.

Note: This module is part of The SIMOPATH Series of training and reference materials. For more information refer to The Home Page for The SIMOPATH Series.

The first step is to change the project properties for the project.

1. Selecting Project Properties.
1.1. From the Net Express tool bar select "Project" option.
1.2. From the drop-down list select "Properties..." option.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Step 2, Select the IDE Environment

The following window should be displayed.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Step 3, Define Concatenated Directories

The following window should be displayed.

3. Define Concatenated Directories
3.1. In the "Variable;" box type in the variable name "COBCPY".
3.2. In the "Value:" box type in the drive/directory names of the directories that contain COBOL copy files. The names are separated by a semi-colon (;). For this example use "c:\DataMig1\CobCpy1;c:\SimoLIBR"
3.3. Click on the "Set" button.
3.4. Make sure the variable name and value appear in the larger window pane.
3.5. Click on the "OK" button to return to the previous screen.

Continue to next step.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Step 4, View Project with Copy Files

The following window should be displayed.

4. View Project with Copy Files
4.1. The Copy Files are now accessible via COBCPY

The COBOL programs using the copy files are ready to be compiled.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Summary

The purpose of this document is to define the location of COBOL copy files to a Net Express project. This document may be used to assist as a tutorial for new programmers or as a quick reference for experienced programmers.

In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. This document and the links to other documents are intended to provide a greater awareness of the Data Management and Application Processing alternatives.

The documentation and software were developed and tested on systems that are configured for a SIMOTIME environment based on the hardware, operating systems, user requirements and security requirements.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
