I have imported a war file of an existing project into my eclipse IDE and it shows me the war file as a textfile but doesn't expand the file structure.

I created a new project ( a java project) and then right clicked on the new project and iported the war file uisng import button, browing to the location of the war file.


Thanks


What a wonderful world!

Eclipse doesnt support J2EE development by native. You need plugins to do that. Try to search "Lomboz" in Google.

Hi
You can not import a war file into Eclipse
because Eclipse does not Support J2ee development Out-of-The-Box
You need perhaps you ned installing some Plugins like :
Lomboz , ...
or you can get WSAD from IBM site which has J2ee support .

As alternative (free way) other than Lomoz plugin:

Try NetBeans 4 Beta 2: http://www.netbeans.org/community/releases/40/beta.html

It supports J2EE development.
