What is the "workspace"?

A so-called workspace must be specified the first time Eclipse is running. Eclipse will automatically offer to attach the workspace to your profile. Generally speaking, a workspace is a storage space for projects, mappings and project depending files. Settings for Eclipse will also be saved at this point (A workspace can be set up practically anywhere).

If the CheckBox has not been selected, which would result in setting the specified workspace as the default, the dialog will be displayed every single time Eclipse is running, as it is possible to create various Eclipse workspaces. In case you require only one workspace, the CheckBox can be selected without worry, because workspaces can be changed within Eclipse at any time.
