Problem:

“java.lang.nullpointerexception” error shown when using COBOL Application Run Configuration - Visual COBOL for Eclipse 3.0

Resolution:

This is a known Eclipse IDE issue when using a monitor with high DPI settings (e.g. 4k monitor), see Eclipse Bug report:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=495849

To resolve this, consider upgrading Eclipse from version 4.6.0 to version 4.6.3 where handling of monitors with high DPI is improved.
