The workbench and perspectives
When you open the IDE for the first time, the Welcome page is displayed. You can use this page to access key resources, such as sample apps, quickly. You can access this page by clicking Help > Welcome.
A workbench is the basic UI of the IDE and consists of perspectives, views, and editors for working with your resources. A perspective determines what you see in the UI and the layout of the UI. You can access a perspective using Window > Open Perspective. There are various perspectives that you can use depending on what you are trying to do. For example, if you're debugging your app, the Debug perspective shows you all the tools related to debugging. Another useful perspective is QNX System Information. This perspective provides a complete and detailed report on your system's resource allocation and use.
Views are the windows that appear in the perspective and will vary based on the perspective. You can access individual views using Window > Show View.
To get to the workbench, from the Welcome screen, click or close the Welcome page.
