At the Eclispe Resource API level, there is no real concept of a project
type. The information you pass to the APIs gets reflected in the .project
file (which is an XML document). Some project 'types' - e.g. Java have
secondard files as well (e.g. .classpath).
Rather than try to know all of this things in the engine (a futile task), it
is assumed that you will simply generated all the files associated with the
type of project you want to produce:
<ws:file path=".project" template="projectXType.jet"/>
The best way to find out what files need to be created is to run the New
project wizard, and take a look. Removing explorer filters of . files is
