Creating a custom project
You can create a new custom project by following the below steps or you can select one of the predefined custom project configurations (if any) that appear in the Custom option in the General category in the OpenEdge Project wizard.
When you select a predefined custom project, the New OpenEdge wizard displays the folder structure of the project on the Review custom project layout page and the PROPATH entries are displayed on the Define PROPATH page.
To create a custom project:
1. Select File > New > OpenEdge Project from the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge main menu bar or the Project Explorer view context (right-click) menu. The New OpenEdge Project wizard opens and displays the Create an OpenEdge Project page.
2. Type a name in the Project name field.
The root folder for the new project is created in your current Eclipse workspace, unless you specify a different location.
3. To choose a different location for the project, click and clear the Use default check box. Then either browse to, or enter the path to the desired location.
4. Select General from the left section.
5. Select the Custom option button.
6. Click Next. The Project Facets page appears.
7. Select the facets to be enabled for the project or leave the default settings and click Next. The Select AVM and layout options page appears.
8. Specify the OpenEdge AVM options and the Project layout options (or leave the default settings) and click Next. The Define PROPATH page appears.
9. Leave the default settings or modify the PROPATH entries to be used by the project and click Next. The Select database connections page appears.
10. Select the database connections to be used by the project and click Finish.
You will see your project and its resources in the Project Explorer view.
