In our institution, code is kept in version control repositories without
IDE metainformation. Is there a way to add a folder from VCS to a
workspace and add on previously created project metainfo (.project,
..classpath) files? It seems a project's type is cached somewhere so even
if I add those files and do a folder refresh, Eclipse won't honor the
new information. Is there a way to force Eclipse to use the new project
metainfo?

You can try closing and re-opening the project.

That did the trick!

*sheepish grin* I just kept Refreshing and refreshing thinking it would
catch on. I had to do it in two passes, though. When I copied my
..project, .classpath and .settings/ resources from a previous copy,
Eclipse just re-initialized the .classpath file and none of the copied
settings took hold. I had to close the project and copy .classpath again.

Thanks a lot!
