I see eclipse.org has a cobol plugin. :-) I knew of 2 before that now
that makes three. Have you tried asking on the cobol newsgroup?
eclipse.tools.cobol?
It looks like the download is source and you have to build it. Its a 2.0
version of eclipse. Only error I found once the classpaths were fixed up
was a call to org.eclipse.swt.custom.StyledText.setTabStopMode which it
couldn't find. Although i used 2.0.2 not a vanilla 2.0 which it seems
to be built on.

Thanks for the information. Since I am new to Java and Eclipse (hence the
Cobol integration), in order to correct the Classpaths, do I change the
properties of the Project and added the appropriate libraries and external
JARs, or is there something I am missing?

Thanks,

Yes you can do it that way. I did it like this. There may be a better
way. Since the source didn't have .project files I couldn't just import
them. I don't think this will help you make it useful though. There
seems to be quite a bit of JNI which means a native C compile has to
occur somewhere. There are no instructions and nothing in CVS (empty
directories.) So i suspect the project has gotten that far off the
ground yet to have a real driver.

Anyway to compike the java source i did the following.

Unzipped the cobol.zip into the root of my workspace.

1) Created a new java project with the same name as the directory i just
unzipped into the root of the workspace (ie com.fujitsu.cbdt.core).
2) Repeat for the other directories.
3) Imported as binary projects all of eclipse (simpler that way there
are prereq's on lots of pieces. ) File->Import->Import external plugins
and fragments.
4) For each cobol plugin (those with plugin.xml's) I selected the
plugin.xml and RMB context menu selected "update classpath".
5) For the one not a plugin i modifed the build path as you mention.
6) A few iterations of this and it compiled with the error I mentioned.

If you were looking to just use the plugin then I think you'll need to
wait until the project becomes more stable and has a real driver. If you
are looking to play then go to town :)
