Introduction In this lab you will primarily do some set-up of the development tool you will be using in the course,  called Eclipse.  You will also learn how to extract a Java project from a CVS repository, and how to  submit a Java project using Web-CAT.  This will ensure that you know how to do the basics with  Eclipse and also how to submit your work in this course. Lab Tasks Log in Your first lab task is to log in to your CSE computer account. Running a Program on Linux The first thing we want to do is do some set-up for your account.  To do this we will run a program.   At the Linux prompt in a terminal window (refer back to last week’s lab if you don’t remember how  to do this) type the command /projects/CSE115/Setup/115setup This command runs a script on the Linux system that does a number of things behind the scenes  to get you set up to work on the labs. The one thing that you can immediately notice is the creation  of a file called cse115.epf in your home directory (use the ls command at the Linux prompt to see  it). After you type the command and press Enter/Return (the   or   key), you simply get the Linux prompt back. This is typical: most Linux  commands give no report back if the command was a success; only failures are reported. Beginning Your Setup of Eclipse Last week you learned how to use some basic Linux commands to navigate and manipulate the  directory structure.  Now you need to learn to run Eclipse. First open a terminal window and then  type the following command to launch the program at the Linux prompt: eclipse & The ampersand ‘ & causes Eclipse to run in the background – in practical terms this means that  right after you press Enter/Return you get the Linux prompt back.

When you start up Eclipse, you will see a splash screen similar to this one: Then you will see a window that will ask you which  workspace  you want to open. The workspace is  the folder/directory where Eclipse keeps the files for your projects.  By default, it will probably say  something like this: Be sure to check the box "Use as default and don't ask me again", and then click "OK".  After you  click “OK” you will see a screen that looks like this:

Click on the arrow on the right-hand side to take you to the Eclipse workbench.  After doing this  you will see the default workbench setup, shown in the screenshot below. The TAs will talk about

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
