Eclipse (and COBOL)... for giggles...

This is the Elastic COBOL plugin (for Eclipse) running a GUI app in the debugger.

It can be done, but performance (open-jdk6) and available memory make it somewhat painful.

Why elastic? Does it allow programming bounced checking accounts? :D

It's a 'stretch' remembering back over the thirty years since I last wrote anything in COBOL :-)

I've played a bit with Elastic recently, and so far it seems pretty good on the Pi, once the java interpreter finally decides to start running!

Performance here will remain sluggish until we get a JVM with JIT.

The Raspberry Pi has the attention of Oracle so hopefully we'll see something in the near future.

How did you get Eclipse to start in your RPi? which version?

Hi Charles.

I used this Eclipse download (on Raspian with the OpenJDK):

It's not quick...
