Creating a project

To create a project:

  1. On the main menu bar, click File > New Project. The New Project wizard opens.
  2. Select a category from the left column and then select the type of project to create from the right column. To assist in locating a particular wizard, the text field can be used to show only the wizards that match the entered text. Click Next.
  3. In the Project name field, type a name for your new project.
  4. (Optional) The project that you create will map to a directory structure in the file system. The default file system location is displayed in the Location field. If you want to create the project and its contained resources in a different location, clear the Use default location checkbox and specify the new location.
  5. If you want the new project to be dependent on one or more other projects, click Next and select the projects to be referenced.
  6. Click Finish. The new project is listed in one of the navigation views.

Tip: The General > Perspectives > preference page allows you to specify the perspective behavior when a new project is created.
