I created a project in c:\dir_1\ workspace, and when i create it, i choose "create from an existing source", and from there I browse to and pick c:\dir_2\ where I store a lot of source code. So the project "mypj" is created in c:\dir_1 workspace.
Next time when i open eclipse, it by default asks me to open from c:\dir_1 workspace and I hit yes, it shows the "mypj" project. However, when I check the file system I found that
1. in c:\dir_1 (workspace) there is only ".metadat" folder. 2. the .project is located in c:\dir_2.
So, how can .project NOT located in its workspace folder (C:\dir_1) ? Is ".project" supposed to be in the same folder as ".metadata" ?
No, the .project file is supposed to be in your project's root folder. A project's root folder doesn't need to be located in the workspace folder.
With other words, everything is just fine...
