How can I tell my project template type? [message #1328167] Fri, 02 May 2014 14:50 Go to next message

For a newbie in Eclipse who can't quite tell some time after starting a project what project template I chose (i.e. Dynamic Web Project, Java Project etc.) when I first started the project, how do you tell?

I can't quite recognize my project icon types in the explorer pane just yet. Is there a "properties-like" view where I can get this information about a project I started a while back and so don't remember what template I started with?

Thanks

I don't think there's any way in the Eclipse UI to tell, but the simplest alternative might be to open the .project file and see what natures are applied. If it's not obvious to you, post the contents of the file here and the community can probably help identify what each nature means.

Is the .project file in the projects' directory as in one per project?

EDIT: I see, its in the project directory per project. I can't tell the template by looking at the natures. Here is what I got:

<natures>
<nature>org.eclipse.jem.workbench.JavaEMFNature</nature>
<nature>org.eclipse.wst.common.modulecore.ModuleCoreNature</nature>
<nature>org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.nature</nature>
<nature>org.eclipse.jdt.core.javanature</nature>
<nature>org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.jsNature</nature>
</natures>

Yes. Also, the icons are decorated and you'll get used to what they look
like over time. The .project file tells more of the story though.

That looks like a Dynamic Web project, including JavaScript capability.
