Is it possible to define a new project type for eclipse? I would like to create a 'Struts Project' type that has the right libraries and config files there.

Thanks.

I'm sure there is a way of doing that since plugin developers would need to create project types. But I'm sure it is complicated and there are easier ways to accomplish what you are trying to do.

1) Create a project containing the proper classpath and jars. Every time, you want a new Struts project, make a copy of this project.
2) Download a plugin that supports Struts. You can do a search of this forum to find a few. I think one is free.

Thanks for the tip. I had figured this out, but assumed that there was a better way to do it.

The struts plugins are mostly disapointing. I'm working on my boss to by the Exadel one now.
