Step 4: Building Java programs

This topic briefly discusses the building of Java™ files that are part of a non-OO COBOL application that interoperates with Java.

The Java files in the application should be built as they normally would be. However, if a Java class interacts with COBOL using this framework by either calling COBOL native methods or accessing COBOL WORKING-STORAGE directly, it is necessary to import the Java package that contains the COBOL classes generated by the cjbuild utility. This is the package name specified via the -p option of cjbuild and which defaults to enterprise.COBOL.

For example, this is the import statement for the default interoperability package name that will be added to the top of a Java file:
import enterprise.COBOL.*;

Next step: Example: COBPROD application - building and running.
