When Eclipse is installed, it automatically sets up a folder called workspace on your c:drive under users/username/workspace. This is the default location of all new projects created in Eclipse. We can start by looking at the folders for the projects we created in the previous steps, then we will run some code that creates a new file and reads from an existing file. This gives us practice identifying where we need to store our files and how to reference them in our code.
- [Voiceover] When we first installed Eclipse,…and we launched it for the first time,…do you remember the prompt that it asked you…where you wanted to store your files?…It automatically defaults to the C drive, to users,…your username, and it creates a folder called Workspace.…That's where your files are located.…Let's take a look at the Workspace,…now that we've written a couple programs.…I'm gonna go out to the Windows File Explorer,…and I want to go to the C drive, users,…the name I'm using on this computer is Producer,…and if I scroll all the way to the bottom,…there's my Workspace folder.…
Again, Eclipse automatically created this folder for me.…Notice there's three programs here,…Grades, HelloWorld, and ShortCuts.…Let's open one of the folders.…In Eclipse, it automatically generates…additional folders and files…when you create a new Java application.…As you can see, it has a .settings folder,…a bin folder, and an src folder.…The bin folder…is where Eclipse is gonna store our .class file,…which is the compiled byte code…
