4.3 Importing the example projects into Eclipse

To use the example projects provided with DS-5, 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 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. In the main menu, select Help > Cheat Sheets....
  4. Expand the ARM Eclipse for DS-5 group.
  5. Select Automatically Importing the DS-5 Example Projects into the Current Workspace from the list of ARM cheat sheets.
    Figure 4-1 Cheat Sheet Selection
    Cheat Sheet Selection

  6. Click OK.
  7. Follow the steps in the cheat sheet to import the DS-5 example projects into your workspace.
Browse the imported examples in the Project Explorer.
Each example contains a readme.html which explains how you can work with each example.
