Techniques for Associating Eclipse Projects with AccuRev

There are several techniques for associating Eclipse projects with AccuRev. The following summarizes these techniques.

Create an Eclipse Project in an Existing AccuRev Workspace

Creates a new Eclipse project and places it in the workspace you choose. Two options are available:

  • A wizard can be used to create a new project and a new .project file is created by Eclipse.
  • If the workspace already contains a .project file, that file is used to create the Eclipse project.

See Creating an Eclipse Project in an Existing AccuRev Workspace.

Create a Single Eclipse Project in a New AccuRev Workspace

Creates a new Eclipse project and a new AccuRev workspace and places the project in the workspace. All files from in the AccuRev stream you specify are placed into the new workspace. Two options are available:

  • A wizard can be used to create a new project and a new .project file is created by Eclipse.
  • If a .project file is already within the stream, that file is used to create the Eclipse project.

See Creating a Single Eclipse Project in a New AccuRev Workspace.

Create Multiple Eclipse Projects in New AccuRev Workspaces

Creates a new Eclipse project for each folder you select and places the files from each of them in new AccuRev workspaces. A new .project file is automatically created for each Eclipse project.

See Creating Multiple Eclipse Projects in a New AccuRev Workspace.

Share an Eclipse Project with AccuRev

Creates an internal Eclipse association (mapping) of an Eclipse project to AccuRev.

See Sharing an Eclipse Project with AccuRev.

Note: Associating an Eclipse project with AccuRev does not copy any data into your Eclipse project folder. The data is located in the AccuRev workspace, and simply becomes accessible through the Eclipse project.
