Question:

I got the following compiler warning. Is there any equivalent for the COPY RESOURCE functionality?
--W: Directive ignored: COPY RESOURCE; file = smSWLOGON.CO, line = 1783, col 
Answer: 
The isCOBOL compiler ignores the COPY RESOURCE statement to avoid creating a .jar file for each program.
We suggest putting the resouce files (.bmp for example) in the same folder as the .class files. You can create a myapplication.jar file that contains all .class and resource files.
