old project not "Dynamic" [message #190644] Wed, 28 March 2007 22:36 Go to next message

I have built a new Dynamic Web Project in Eclipse and started moving
files into it from an old working JSF project.

Now the DWP is no longer Dynamic - its a standard java project.

I cannot deploy or export to war either.

What's happend and how do I correct it?

Maybe you overwrote some project metadata files when you were copying
files over from the old project? Probably the easiest thing to do at
this point is to create a new dynamic web project and copy files again.
Just be sure not to copy any of the files starting with a dot in the
root project directory or anything in the .settings directory.

Thanks, but I was copying files in Eclipse (copy/paste) and couldn't even
see such files.

Do you think its a .project file setting? Perhaps one I could type in?

Could be. You can try comparing what your .project contents look like
against the contents of the .project file in a new Dynamic Web Project.
