Step 3: Link the projects to a directory in the source tree

Next, you must link each individual project in the IDE to its corresponding directory in the source tree.

To link projects:

  1. Select File > New > Folder.
  2. Select your new project (Project_ComponentA) as the parent folder.
  3. Type a name for the folder (e.g. ComponentA).
  4. Click Advanced>>.
  5. Enable the Link to folder in the file system option.
  6. Type the path to that folder in your source tree (or use Browse… to locate and select one).
  7. Click Finish.
    Your Project_ComponentA project should show a folder called ComponentA, the contents of which actually reside in your source tree.
