Is there a limit to how many source files can be stored in a Visual COBOL for Eclipse project?

 
Resolution:

There is no limit apart from that the Eclipse IDE shipped with Visual COBOL for Eclipse is a 32bit process and has a 2GB process limit.

For a baseline comparison, the Visual COBOL product's source code consists of over 6500 source files in about 40 projects and the Eclipse IDE can handle this without problem. It’s a matter of how things are organised rather than an absolute number.
