How to program microcontrollers?

Hello everybody! I am a new guy in programing microcontrollers. I have some problem with this. I have J-Link EDU, CodeWarrior the latest version, and PLC Stamp 1 with some example projects. Now question, how can I download (flash) one of this project into microcontroller? Which option should I use?

Hi Eric. Thank you for the reply. I did all steps like in the site. Now when I try to debug my project I get an error:

"An application file was not specified in the launch configuration"

What could it mean?

Ok. This error does not exist anymore. But I still don't understand I debugged controller or not? I need just to choose Run-Debug? That is all I need to program controller?

Hi Sergey,

Please understand that we cannot provide support to get started with third party utilities (like Freescale CodeWarrior).
Usually all you need to do when using J-Link:
Make sure that you have selected the correct MCU in your IDE project (here Codewarrior).
Then simply start the debug session.
J-Link will take care of flashing the application etc. automatically.

Best regards
