Eclipse - CVS Java Project

Hi,

Why do I need to Check Out files as Java Project ? I can simply check out the project from the CVS and work on it without any problems.

In fact, checking out as Java Project adds some dfault package and some JARs. It also adds some classpath and project property files.

Why do I need to view all these when compiling or building my Java Project ? It clutters up the space.

So I was wondering -- any particular reason for which I need to Check Out my project as Java Project ?

Regards,
Arijit

Hi Satish,

Do you mean that I cannot create new packages if I don't CHECK OUT AS Java project ?

Also, what extra help in java compiling ? Can you please be more specific about it ?

Thanks,
Arijit

Does the project icon have a "J" in the upper right corner whem you do this?

Does it? That's strange - what jars are added?


It also adds some classpath and project property files.



Actually the .project file should also be created for non-Java projects. The .classpath file is needed by eclipses java compiler. They shouldn't be shown in the package explorer, though.

It adds JREs.. and I can see a default package stuff....

I used filters to chuck them out from my workspace view...

So now just my clean workspace..
