2.2 Importing the example projects into Eclipse

How to import the example projects provided with DS-5.

To use the example projects in Eclipse, you must first import them.


  1. Launch Eclipse:
    • On Windows, select Start > All Programs > ARM® DS-5 > Eclipse for DS-5.

    • On Linux, enter eclipse in the Unix bash shell.

  2. ARM recommends that you create a new workspace for the example projects so that they remain separate from your own projects. To do this you can either:
    • Create a new workspace directory during the start up of Eclipse.

    • If Eclipse is already open, select File > Switch Workspace > Other from the main menu.

  3. Select Cheat Sheet... from the Help menu.
  4. Expand the ARM Eclipse for DS-5 group.
  5. Select Automatically Import the DS-5 Example Projects into the Current Workspace from the list of ARM cheat sheets.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Follow the steps in the cheat sheet to import all the DS-5 example projects into your workspace.

When the examples are imported, you can optionally follow the remaining cheat sheet instructions to switch on working sets if required.
