Importing an existing standalone QNX Photon Appbuilder project
If you have an application written in the standalone version of QNX Photon
Appbuilder, you can import it into an empty IDE-based PhAB project. Once the project is
imported, you can edit the source and build the project in the IDE.
To import a standalone PhAB project:
Open the project in standalone PhAB and make sure it uses an Eclipse Project
directory structure. To do this, select
Note: If this option is grayed out, the project already uses an Eclipse Project
Save the project.
Run the IDE and create a new Photon Appbuilder Project. This will run PhAB
automatically, but for now cancel and exit out of PhAB. This creates a new,
empty PhAB project in your workspace.
Select File system to import
resources from the local filesystem. Browse to the project saved earlier by
standalone PhAB, and import the following items:
, and choose
- the abapp.dfn file
- the abapp.wsp file
- the src directory and contents
- the wgt directory and contents
At this point you can rebuild the project using the IDE, and launch PhAB from
the IDE to edit the project.
