3.4. Distilled

  • A workspace provides a complete view of all resources required by a set of related projects.

  • Eclipse resources provide a platform-independent, logical view of files and folders, but they must be synchronized with the file system if changes are made outside of the Eclipse workbench.

  • A Java project contains source and output folders (preferably separate locations). The project is automatically configured with an incremental builder that compiles all source files into the output folder. Non-Java projects do not include the incremental builder, but other than that, they could be arranged in the same way.

  • You can map parts of the Eclipse workspace hierarchy onto disjoint locations in the file system by using linked resource locations. This is especially helpful when using Eclipse in combination with other products and development tools that require specific file locations.

  • Configuring an application using multiple projects contributes long-term benefits that improve reuse of independent modules. Project dependencies control visibility of cross-project imported classes.
