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.

  • Thank you for responding with the requested version information, Anthony. I would definitely recommend getting your Visual COBOL for Eclipse installation up to the same Patch Update version that is being used on your DevHub machine; these versions should always match.

    For products currently under maintenance with Micro Focus, you can download Patch Updates from the SupportLine website. Here is the link:

    http://supportline.microfocus.com

    then click the Downloads icon. You'll need to log in before you can download any updates.

    If getting the Patch Update versions in sync does not resolve the problem, I'll still want to confirm the Debug Configuration settings you are using. Investigating this kind of problem may require sharing sensitive information not suitable for a public forum. I'd like to suggest that you create a Support Incident for this issue, and mention in the description that it should be assigned to Blair McDonald. Once we find a resolution, I'll come back here and update the Community discussion with the resolution.
