Step 9.2: Create a new project

The easiest way to avoid clutter is to segregate programs into projects. In this case, we'll create a new project called SWT, since we'll be concentrating on SWT programming. In previous steps, I had you add a new project by using the popup menu from the navigator view. In this step, I'll show you an alternative method: the File/New/Project... option. The File menu has a New submenu, and the New submenu has a Project... option.

q 9.2(a) From the Eclipse main menu bar, select File/New/Project ...
