Hi there,

I am new to java and to eclipse.

I am trying to open an existing project which I got from source control.

My project directory is complete and has a .project file in it.

I want the workspace to be the directory that the project is currently in.

However, when I am opening eclipse, setting the workspace to be the project directory and then trying to import the project I am getting an error of conflicting workspaces.

The only way I managed to open the project via eclipse is by creating a different workspace and import the project for the new workspace.

Is there a way to open the project as is in eclipse without creating different workspaces (like opening a cproj/sln in visual studio)?

Many thanks!!

You can open an existing project in workspace without creating a new workspace. After you open the workspace in eclipse, the choose File -> New -> Project, choose Java Project or any other project you want to create and give the name of the PROJECT which you already copied in the workspace.
Then you will see the existing project in eclipse.

Thanks
