How to get started with Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge : Starting Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge : Selecting a workspace

Selecting a workspace

When you start Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge, Eclipse prompts you to specify a workspace in the Workspace Launcher dialog. A workspace is a folder that contains the content of your projects along with any project metadata.
You can specify an existing workspace, or you can specify a folder in your file system that will function as a workspace. By default, the Workspace Launcher dialog maintains a list of the last five workspaces that you used.
You can change workspaces when Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge is running by selecting File > Switch Workspace from the main menu bar. Progress Developer Studio restarts when you change workspaces. If you want to work in multiple workspaces, you must start a separate instance of Progress Developer Studio for each workspace.
