Step 1: Set Up a Project for Creating Your Cheat Sheet Files

To begin, choose File > New > Project and from the New Project wizard, expand Plug-In Development, and choose Plug-in Project, as shown in Figure 2. When using BEA Workshop for WebLogic 9.2, you must click the Show All Wizards option to see these project types.

On the next dialog, specify the project name. Be sure to uncheck the Create a Java project option, as shown in Figure 3. For more complex cheat sheets that invoke Java actions, you may have to enable this option. For simple text-only cheat sheets that do nothing more complex than launch a wizard, you don't need to create a Java project.

On the next dialog, fill in the provider field with your name or company name (see Figure 4). Click Finish to create the project.

You'll also be prompted to switch to Plug-in Development perspective, and you should click Yes to do that.

At this point you will have created an empty cheat sheet project. You are now in a position to start filling in the content.
