cobanimsrv

Hello,

We use to debug an application with cobanimsrv under ServerExpress 5. We start cobanimsrv and then start an application that calls a daemon to communicate with cobol. When cobanimsrv is started, it waits for our application to start. Once we have launched our app (via Adobe Air), we can debug the cobol code with anim.


Is there an equivalent of the cobanimsrv command for VC2.1 for Eclipse in order to debug a program from inside Eclipse ?


Thank you

    Hi Alain,

    Yes, I can confirm that there is an equivalent of this functionality in the Visual COBOL for Eclipse product.  

    As a matter of fact, there's a lot more support for remote Unix compilation and debugging in the VC product.  You can now maintain, compile and debug your Unix/Linux applications with an Eclipse IDE running on Windows.  

    The debugger daemon and servers all run on the remote Unix machine in much the same way as they did with ServerExpress except that all the settings are handled for you rather than having to manually set port numbers etc.  The user experience is much smoother and less prone to error.

    You will want both a copy of the VC for Eclipse product and the VC Development Hub (the Unix parts).

    All manner of debugging scenarios are supported: waiting for application attachment, attaching to a running process, launching the process for debug and just in time debugging.  

    Regards,

    Darren
