Restrictions of use
There are specific restrictions and peculiarities that apply when using Eclipse.
- Organizing projects
- The recommended structure for project source files is to create them in the project folder or sub-folder. If a source file is created in a folder that is higher than the project, an absolute link is created.
- Opening an existing Eclipse project
- You must use the import wizard to import an existing Eclipse project into your workspace.
- Inter-project dependencies
- Nested projects are not supported. Each project must be organized as a discrete entity. Inter-project dependencies can be set up by referencing other projects that reside in your workspace. Select Project > Properties > Project References from the main menu to manually add references.
- Link order
- Specifying the link order of your object files within the same project is not possible with Eclipse. As a workaround, if you split your object files into different projects, you can specify the project build order. Select Window > Preferences... > General > Workspace > Build Order from the main menu.
- Restore Defaults
- Restoring the defaults of a project discards all information that is not a part of the project type. All settings changed in the New Project Wizard are lost.
