I've been using JET for a short time and until now I had no need for
complex workspace navigation. Now I'm trying to get my bearings with this
functionality and I encountered a small problem. It may be solved already
in a different post (I admit I did not read all of the posts here,
although I plan to); the problems is that when the JET engine processes
the <ws:project...> tag, and a new project is created into the Eclipse
workbench, that project is a general and not a Java project; This is a
problem for the following execution, and my model processing results in an
error; The only workaround I found for this is to add the java nature by
hand in the XML configuration of the project. Is there any other way to do

While JET has no tags to create a complete Java project, all is not lost.

All the project meta-data is stored within files in the workspace. The best
way to find out what the files are is to create a Java project using the
wizards, and then take a look at in the package explorer with the ".*
resources" filter off.

From experience, you need at least:

..project - an XML document that contains the project name, and the
builders and natures for a Java project. Typically, you only need to change
the project name.
..classpath - an XML document that defines the classpath. Typically, you
don't need to change this at all.
src - the Java source folder - the Java builders complain
bitterly if they cannot find this directory.

So, something like the following should work:

====== main.jet ============

<c:setVariable var="java.project" select=" '' "/>
<ws:project name="{$java.project">
<ws:file path=".project" template="templates/java.project/project.jet"/>
<ws:file path=".classpath"
<ws:folder path="src"/>

==== project.jet ====
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<name><c:get select="$java.project" /></name>

======= classpath.jet ===========
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<classpathentry kind="src" path="src"/>
<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/>
<classpathentry kind="output" path="bin"/>
