MF Visual Cobol for Eclipse 2.2 on Linux

Hi,

I installed MF Visual Cobol for Eclipse 2.2 on Linux (centOS). License is activated and the command line compiler works fine.

After it I started eclipse, and I created a small project without any error. Debugger works also.

Then I tried to import a big project (version 2.1). It's imported without any error, but the compilation stopped.

I closed eclipse and restarted it. It does not work any more, it shows only the splash screen.

After it I renamed the workspace and eclipse new restarted. It starts but I get a java error:

"An internal error occurred during: "Initializing Java Tooling".
com/microfocus/eclipse/project/content/FileTypeHelper"

After click on OK it goes, but I can not create a Cobol Project.

Any hints or helps?

Thx - Laszlo

  • Hello Laszlo,

    com/microfocus/eclipse/project/content/FileTypeHelper  refers to one of the classes in the plugins we ship with the product. If I had to speculate, it is complaining it does not know how to handle one of the extension types in the imported project. Perhaps you  have some custom extension types in the project defined and those definitions did not migrate to 2.2.

    We will need a test case of what you are trying to import from 2.1.

    Recommend you  file a support ticket as you will most likely  need to submit a test case for further study.
