Creating EGL projects

Creating a project is the first step to programming in EGL. Luckily, it's pretty easy! Once you have the the Eclipse EGL Development Tools installed and are in the EGL perspective, select File > New > EGL project and the EGL project wizard leads you through creating the project and specifying its settings.

There are 4 project templates you can base your new project on:

  1. Basic - for developing EGL programs, services, and libraries.
  2. Web 2.0 client - for developing rich web applications that use existing web services
  3. Web 2.0 client with services - for developing rich web applications and new web services
  4. Hello world - an example project that contains rich web application and service

Besides the project template, the only required information is the project name. So once you type a project name, you could hit Finish and your new project will appear in the Project Explorer. The folders and settings for your new project are based on the project template you selected.

For more curious folks that want to see or change project settings such as package names, compilers and generators, widget libraries, and the EGL build path, you can click Next to proceed through the wizard pages. The EDT: New Project wizard wiki page contains more details about the project settings, as well as information about extending the project wizard with your own template and settings.  

We'd love to hear about the new EGL projects you are creating!
