ECO: Where are CoreClasses?

If you create a new ECO project, which personality or platform you might choose does not matter, the Model View looks different in BDS 2006 compared to D2005. The default ECO Package is no longer named "CoreClasses".

The far more intuitive name "Package_1" is being used. Furthermore, I think it's better classified as a "package" this way, as you have your final classes in separate or one source file(s).

Basically, you can safely double click on "Package_1" instead of "CoreClasses" in order to open your first ECO model.


  • I noticed that too. Not being familiar with ECO and reading from online tutorials, it took me quite a while to figure out they were the same.

  • Me 2... I was following the ECO II tutorial found on BDN. Perhaps someone at Borland could create another series of ECO III tutorial?

  • Package_1 sounds so strange (and in fact ugly!) to me, I rename it immediately to "CoreClasses" after creating the project :P Could they come up with a reasonably informative name or simply give the user an option for the name?

  • William,

    if you want to suggest a change, please use QC to create a feature suggestion.
