Converting a project to a dynamic web project [message #135727] Tue, 30 August 2005 17:48 Go to next message

I've modified the .project/.classpath and .runtime files of an existing
java project to correspond to a "fresh" new Dynamice webproject. When I
did this, it complained that the JavaSource directory was declared
twice. It was appearing in the lib tab of the project properties->java
build path as well as in the source tab (it shouldn't be in the lib tab).

To resolve this, I deleted the project from the workspace and then
imported it from an existing project. This cleared up the problem.

Has anyone else experienced this--has a bug been logged for this behavior?

Hi Brian,

I wouldn't call this behaviour a bug... You were trying to change a
project's nature, and it is normal that WTP should make complaints, cause
your changes were not sufficient for it to recognize your project as a Web
project..

Namely, you would need to edit the .project file (to add builders and
natures appropriate to a Web project), then edited or created the
..wtpmodules file, and also edited the .classpath and added a .runtime file
to associate a server runtime to your Web project.

The easier option in your case would have been to create a new Web project
from scratch, then just copied the Java source files and other files from
your old Java project into the new one...
