Hello.

When clicking on the context menue of a project usually a menue item Build Path appears.
Somehow it happened that this menue item disappeared.

When I create a completely new Java project this menue item is displayed.
How can I achieve that this menue point is displayed again with existing projects?

Thank you.

Context is dependent upon what perspective you're in as well as which
file or other object you right-click on. If you're in the Java or Java
EE perspective and you right-click on your project (at top of all
project contents), do you not see Build Path? Do you know and can you
tell what perspective you're in?

Oh Jesus. It was that easy!?!

When I am in the Java perspective I can see the Build Path menue item (again).
Being in the Java EE perspective this menue item is NOT visible.

I guess, that's what you meant: Depending on the chosen perspective the context menue may change.

Do YOU see the Build Path menue item in the Java EE perspective??

Yes. It wouldn't be very helpful if I didn't. I hope someone more
knowledgeable will be able to explain why you cannot and what to do
about it.
