<h1>Setting up an API baseline</h1>
<p>Once your plug-in is converted to use API Tools, you need to set up a baseline in order to get the
compatibility analysis performed for your plug-in.</p>
<p>To create an API baseline do the following:</p>
<ol>
<li>Open the <a class="command-link" href='javascript:executeCommand("org.eclipse.ui.window.preferences(preferencePageId=org.eclipse.pde.api.tools.ui.apiprofiles.prefpage)")'> <img src="PLUGINS_ROOT/org.eclipse.help/command_link.png" alt="Opens the API Baselines preference page"> <b>Plug-in Development &gt; API Baselines</b></a> preference page.</li>
<li>Select the <strong>Add Baseline...</strong> button to open the <a href="../reference/api-tooling/wizards/ref-api-baseline-wizard.htm"><strong>API baseline wizard</strong></a>.
  <ul>
    <li>Give a meaningful name for your baseline</li>
    <li>Click <b>Browse...</b> and select the root folder of the Eclipse SDK you want to choose as your baseline</li>
    <li>Click <b>OK</b> in the folder dialog</li>
    <li>Once the baseline is initialized, click <b>Finish</b></li>
    </ul>
</li>
<li>Click <b>OK</b> and you are all set. If your workspace contains some existing projects, you will be prompted for
    a rebuild.</li>
</ol>
