basic question regarding debugging a remote cobjvm program from eclipse

We are migrating from Server Express 5.1 to Visual COBOL 3.0.  I am trying to get a very basic COBJVM example to debug.

 

The environment is

 

Visual COBOL for express 3.0 on windows 10

Visual COBOL devhub 3.0 on SLES 12.

 

I have created a new remote COBOL project with Java Byte Code target.

 

I have created and compiled a very simple COBOL program   (See end of this post)

 

The program compiles fine, and I can run it by going over to Linux and running cobjrun, but when I try to debug it in eclipse I get the following error

 

                 Could not launch remote project.  Check that the remote server settings are not empty. 

 

the remote server setting is definitely not empty, it shows the correct server.

 

----- program ----

 

       program-id. ap02 as "ap02".
       data division.
       working-storage section.
       procedure division.
           display 'Hello, World'.
           goback.
       end program ap02.

  • Hello Anthony,

    I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having. A couple of questions for you:

    1) What version of Java JDK have you specified as your Remote JRE System Library for your Eclipse project? Is it the 32 or 64 bit version?

    2) Do you have the same version (and Patch Update number, if applicable) of Visual COBOL for Eclipse installed on your developer workstation as the version of Visual COBOL Developer Hub installed on your SUSE 12 machine?
