|What is the difference between the project types?||The IDE has these project types:
|How portable are the project types?||The metadata files that should be stored with the project in source control are:
Note: Metadata (also referred to as workspace/.metadata) should never be stored in source control.
|Are projects portable between different versions of the IDE?||Projects are portable between different versions of the IDE; however, see the Release Notes for any known issues regarding the import process.|
|For an existing project without metadata, what's the best method to import it into the IDE?||To import an existing project into the IDE, use the Import wizard (). Alternately, you can create a link folder; however, the IDE won't copy any of its source code.|
|How should complex development scenarios be organized?||Typically, you want to organize your projects such that there is one binary/shared library per project (including all multiplatform and debug variants).|
|How do different projects in the same workspace interact?||You can add a dependency that can affect the build and make dependencies. Typically, you want to add an explicit dependency on particular types, such as shared libraries.|
|Can more than one executable be created in the same project?||If you use a Standard make project, you can create more than one executable for the same project.|
