Checking Out Projects

When you check out a project, writable copies of the latest revision of files in the project are placed in the workfile location and assigned the next revision number.


  • Even though you are checking out at the project level, the actions occur at the file level, therefore this procedure is identical to the procedure described under Checking Out Files. The only difference is that commands at the project level apply to all of the attached files.

  • You can perform the following features from various views within Eclipse, such as Resource view or Package Explorer view.

To check out a project:

  1. Right-click the project and select Team | Checkout.

  2. The Check Out dialog box appears with a list of selected files.

  3. Modify the panels as necessary.

  4. Click Finish. A check mark (checkout_icon.gif) appears next to each file icon to indicate that the files are checked out.
