Eclipse SDK
Version: 3.6.0
Build id: I20100608-0911


i'm new to eclipse and i downloaded a project to experiment with.

project instructions say to "create project from existing source" but with the version of eclipse i dl'd, i do not see that option.

just wondering if that option is from an older version?

how then to "create project from existing source" with ver 3.6.0 ?

tia

Are you looking for File > Import > Existing projects into workspace?

I have related problem:
- I have sources without any ant build file nor eclipse project.
- I need to add them to eclipse
- So, 'import -> existing projects into workspace' and 'new -> java project from existing ant build file' are not applicable for my situation.

As far as I remember "create project from existing source" worked exactly in the way I need. I just put way to source folder and got complete project with all of them...

The second way which I remember: add existed sources to existed project: But there is no option like this in project properties.

Create a project and then do a File > Import > File System.

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

In Location edit box type in the path to your source
