Projects within projects

The source hierarchy for your code may be complex. For example, suppose the source hierarchy looks like this:

To work efficiently with this source in the IDE, each component and subcomponent should be a project. (You could keep an entire hierarchy as a single project if you wish, but you'd probably find it cumbersome to build and work with such a monolith.)

To import a source tree hierarchy:

  1. Create an initial project for your source code.
  2. Create a new project for each existing project or component in your source code tree.
  3. Link the projects to a directory in the source tree.
  4. Build the component project in the linked folder.
