Hi all,

I'm having problems making a project visible in the PyDev Package Explorer.

I've created a new PyDev project called security, but it doesn't appear in the PyDev Package Explorer within eclipse.

Iv'e tried:

1) Refreshing F5
2) importing existing projects into the workspace, but the project i want to import is greyed out and a message states "Some projects cannot be imported because they already exist in the workspace"
3) i can see the "security"folder within my filesystem, which contains a python file, a .project file and a .pydevproject file.

How can I make this visible to the Pydev Package explorer

PyDev isn't part of Eclipse, but a separate and separately supported
(stackoverflow.com) set of plug-ins. The author's website has a lot of
good information on it too, pydev.org.

What you're probably dealing with is a slightly corrupted workspace in
terms of naming.

I would try creating a new workspace and importing the project into it.

There are ways to completely erase a project from the workspace, but, in
trying to solve this, you may have corrupted something that will only be
solved by carefully searching down through metadata and removing
references without breaking anything else.

The easier solution to suggest from this forum is to start with a new
workspace.

Second, don't put your code into the workspace. When you import or when
you create a new project, keep the code outside of the workspace. The
workspace metadata will hold a reference to it nevertheless.

Best of luck.
