Problems maintaining directory structure in a new project [message #759687] Tue, 29 November 2011 15:44 Go to next message

I'm working with someone else on a collaborative project (using git), and I've pulled the most recent version from the repository. I'm now trying to figure out how to make Eclipse work using the current directory structure and am having a few problems. The way the code is set up now, there is a directory called PAD which contains .git and a 'code' which has two sub-directories: src and test. Whenever I create a new Java project, though, it automatically creates a new, separate directory, which is not what I want. Is there any way for me to view/edit/run this pre-existing code within Eclipse without changing the directory structure?

Like you, I'm also not using eGit.

Based on what you've said, I'm not totally certain where your problem
lies, but I can offer this exhaustive treatment of a Git lifecycle
including Eclipse. I think you'll find your answer by reading a bit of
the first of it.

Hope this helps. Sorry I don't have the time to be more specific.

Thanks! I got it working. I was able to copy a .project and .classpath from another project, modify them, and move them into the directory of the project so that Eclipse recognizes it as a project. Thanks for the link - it got me going in the right direction!
