"create project from existing source" is not present in helios(new version of eclipse).

Create project using file>import and "create project from existing source" are two different things. File>import will just create a project and not java project.

Please let me know why Helios doesn't have this function - "create project from existing source" ?

Earlier ones had this. I have java project(not having ant file and its not an eclipse project) and I have to get this in eclipse. Please tell a solution.

PS: I wont create a new java project and then link existing source to this as this wont let me do CVS stuff directly from eclipse.

I need this URGENTLY. Please help

1. File > New > Java Project
2. Unselect 'Use default location' (this does the same like the old option)
3. Select your location
