If this is the first time you start the product, Eclipse opens the Welcome page.
This loads a set of windows inside the main Eclipse window, called views. The views are the ones best suited for the selected development perspective.
This opens the New COBOL JVM Project dialog box.
As well as the .cobolBuild, .cobolProj, and .project files that are automatically created with a COBOL project, there is also a .classpath file. This is an XML file that contains all the paths to user-defined classes and packages. By default, these files are not listed, but you can show them by opening the COBOL Explorer view menu, click (View Menu), and then click Filters and Customization. This opens the Filters and Customization dialog box. Click the Filters tab and uncheck .*resources, and then click OK.
