Part 1 - Eclipse

Eclipse is an open source integrated development environment (IDE). It contains a base workspace and an extensible plug-in system for customizing the environment. Its primary use is for developing Java applications, but it may also be used to develop applications in other programming languages through the use of plugins. Eclipse also offers options to integrate with external tools. In this section we’ll show you to add a new external integration that uses explorer.exe to locate and display the runresults.html file that gets stored with every project’s test execution.
