Time Narration
00:01 Welcome to the spoken tutorial on Getting started with Eclipse.
00:06 In this tutorial, we are going to learn:
00:08 How to create a project and add a class in Eclipse
00:12 How to write a java program and
00:14 How to run a java program in Eclipse.
00:18 For this tutorial, we are using: Ubuntu 11.10, Eclipse 3.7
00:25 To follow this tutorial, you must have
00:28 Eclipse installed on your system.
00:30 If not, for relevant tutorial please visit our website as shown.
00:39 Eclipse is an Integrated Development Environment.
00:42 It is a tool on which one can write, debug and run java programs easily.
00:50 Now let us open Eclipse.
00:55 Press Alt F2 and in the dialog box, type eclipse and hit Enter.
01:08 We have the Workspace Launcher dialog box.
01:11 A workspace is a location where all your project related data and your eclipse related files are stored.
01:19 There is already a location which is the default location.
01:24 Using the Browse feature, a different directory can also be selected.
01:27 For now, let us proceed with the default directory.
01:30 Click OK to proceed.
01:39 And we have the Welcome to Eclipse page.
01:46 Click Workbench which is at the top-right corner of the page.
01:52 And here we have Eclipse IDE. Now let us add a project.
01:57 Go to File , New, select Project.
02:05 In the list of projects, select Java Project.
02:10 Also note that, for most of our tutorials, we will be using Java Project. Click Next.
02:19 In the project name, type EclipseDemo.
02:30 Notice an option that says Use default location.
02:34 If this option is selected, all the 'EclipseDemo' project data is stored in the default workspace.
02:41 If it is unselected, using the Browse feature, a different location can also be selected.
02:47 For now, we’ll use the default location.
02:52 click Finish, located at the bottom right corner of the Wizard.
03:00 We get the Open Associated Perspective dialog box.
03:04 A perspective refers to the way items are arranged in Eclipse.
03:09 The dialog box is suggesting a perspective that is suited for Java development.
03:20 Select Remember my decision and click Yes.
03:27 Here we have EclipseIDE with the project. Now let us add a class to the project.
03:37 Right click on the project, New and select Class.
03:46 In the class name, give DemoClass.
03:55 Notice that in Modifiers, we have two options, public and default.
03:59 For now, leave it as public.
04:01 The other options will be discussed in subsequent tutorials.
04:06 And in the list of method stubs, select the option that says, public static void main.
04:14 The other options will be discussed in subsequent tutorials.
04:19 Click Finish, located at the bottom right corner of the wizard.
04:30 And here we have the class file.
04:35 Notice that there are a lot of partitions. These are called portlets.
04:41 We have the Package Explorer portlet that behaves like a File Browser.
04:46 We have the Editor portlet in which we write the code.
04:50 And the Outline portlet which gives us hierarchy of the project.
04:56 Each portlet can also be resized.
05:10 They can also be minimized by using the Minimize button.
05:26 They can be restored by using the Restore button.
05:37 Now let us minimize other portlets and focus on the Editor.
05:49 As we can see, there is already some code, Eclipse has generated for us.
05:54 The code generated here depends on the options we select while creating the class.
06:00 Now, let us add a print statement here.
06:08 Type: System.out.println in parenthesis in quotes “Hello Eclipse”
06:26 Add a semicolon at the end of the statement.
06:31 Save the file by clicking File and select Save.
06:37 Alternatively, you can use the shortcut Control S also.
06:42 To run this program, right click on the editor, go to Run as and select Java Application.
06:56 We see that if something is printed, the Output console shows the output.
07:04 If our code had problems, the problems would have been shown on the Problems portlet.
07:10 Here is how you write and run a Java program in Eclipse.
07:18 This brings us to the end of this tutorial.
07:20 In this tutorial, we have learnt: how to create a project in eclipse and add a class to it, how to write java source code and how to run a java program in Eclipse.
07:33 As an assignment for this tutorial, create a project by the name Display
07:38 and add a class to the 'Display' project by the name 'Welcome'.
