Hi expert,

After getting this error :

eclipse-internal-error-while-initializing-java-tooling

I proceeded to delete the meta-data folders, server folders, remoteSystemTemp files etc under the workspace where my project used to reside as suggested by stackoverflow

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10892790/eclipse-internal-error-while-initializing-java-tooling/11982469

Now, when I start my Eclipse IDE which is Mars EE, I can't import in the project

How do I import my project cos I'd hate to start build everything from scratch again?

Tks

Well, hard to say without knowing what your project consists of. Did you create it in Eclipse before, do you still have the .project file?

Yap.  I still have it.  All the files are still there as in the workspace for Eclipse. 
So, how can I import my project in ?

If you've buggered up your workspace and your project will no longer open, you might have to recreate your project and add all your existing sources to it. See if you can first open a new project in Eclipse. If not, you might have to reinstall.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
