How do I create an Eclipse project file? [message #950366] Fri, 19 October 2012 17:14 Go to next message

Hi all;

First off I am not an Eclipse user (I use IntelliJ) so this may be a really basic/dumb question.

We ship sample Java programs with our library. I want to create Eclipse project files for each project so Eclipse users can easily open and run the program. But in trying to do this with Eclipse, it looks like it does not have a project file.

Am I missing something or can this not be done with Eclipse?

thanks - dave

All these configuration files start with a '.' and within Eclipse's package explorer these are hidden by default.
The view menu (little triangle pointing down) has an entry "Filters ...", if you deselect ".* resources" you'll see:
- .project -- main project configuration file
- .classpath -- name says it
- .settings/ -- folder for project properties per plug-in

HTH,
Stephan

.. ah, should have mentioned that the standard way to export a project from Eclipse is:

> right click > Export ... > General > Archive File

From there you will see the unfiltered set of project files...
