<h1>Object Teams project creation</h1>
<h2>Opening the project wizard</h2>
<p>The easiest way to create a new Object Teams project is to use the Object Teams
project wizard. The project wizard selection dialog can be opened either by selecting
<b>File > New > Project...</b> from the main workbench window or by selecting
<b>New > Project...</b> from the package explorer's pop-up menu or by selecting
<b>Project...</b> from the drop-down menu on the <b>New</b> button in the workbench
toolbar. Afterwards the wizard for creating an Object Teams project has to be chosen.
<h2>Define settings</h2>
<p>On the first page of the project wizard the name of the project has to be entered.
On the second and last page the standard Java build settings can be defined as desired
(source folder, output folder, libraries etc.).
<h2>Resulting effects</h2>
<p>After all information has been entered the project with the chosen name will be created,
the files <i>.classpath</i> and <i>.project</i> will be created and the tree view in the
package explorer will be updated and the new project displayed.

<h2>OT/Equinox: Plug-in project</h2>
If the project is to develop an Eclipse plug-in using Object Teams (OT/Equinox) choose
the wizard for "Object Teams Plugin Project". This wizard is a variant of the regular
"Plug-in Project" wizard.
<h1>Adding Object Teams support to an existing project</h1>
Alternatively, if you already have a valid Java project or Plug-in project, you may
add Object Teams support using the project's context menu <span class="ui">Configure &gt; Add Object Teams support</span>.
