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

  • Hi,

    There are two scenarios:


    1. I try to start with the original workspace, with the imported big project. In this case I get only the splash screen, and I have to kill the process.

    2. I change the workpace at start, that means I have an empty workspace without any projects. In this case I get the Errors with file types, and there are no ways to create a normal cobol project. I send you 3 pictures.

    error_01: after eclipse start

    error_02: only remote cobol projects, but I Need a "normal" cobol project

    error_03: after eclipse close

    P.S.:

    I find it interesting that MF sells these ancient eclipse version.
    This is 32 bit, and not easy to install on a 64 bit linux. You can not
    automatically install from a linux 64 bit repository the native 32 bit packages.

    What is all this!? Sad 

    It tooks several days for me until eclipse is started without error.
    In the documentation, there are  not a word about 32 bit packages.
