I installed Eclipse 3.0, and check out a existing module from CVS.

but I can't use the Open Declaration. When I click Open Declaration or F3, there is no response. It is first time for me to use Eclipse, is there any step need to do before I use this function? In Netbean, I need to mount file system to use the similary function.

Thanks

David

David,
No, there isn't any special setup. Is F3 taking you to a blank page or noplace at all? It takes you to a blank page or a page with just the methods if the source code is not found.

Try using F3 on a file in your workspace (in the same project) first as that is a simpler case.

Also make sure that your project is a Java project and that your java files are in a source folder.

It shows " The resource is not on the build path of java project.". where is shoudl I change for the build path? I find several place Window > Preferences > Java > Compiler > Build Path,
Window > Preferences > Java > Build Path, but they seem not right place.

Thanks,

David

David,
There is a project build path. You can get to it by right clicking the project and selecting preferences.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
