I'm using WSAD version 5.1.1 and trying to create a new java project using existing files for the project contents rather than the default. But I get a popup that says "An error occurred while creating project. Check log for details. See error log for more details."

Where is this error log supposed to be? What is its name?

Not sure if I have the same version of eclipse -- but the "error log" is just one of the views. It should be one of the tabs on the bottom.

If it is not there, then try "Windows" --> "Show View" --> "Error Log", to get that view.

From the error log, just right click on the error and click on "open log".

Do it that was. Otherwise you can search the plugins directory, I think it is called '.log' unless they renamed it.

Yes. It is in workspace/.metadata/.log.

Henry, WSAD 5 = Eclipse 2.1

Thank you. I couldn't find it in C:\wsad\eclipse\workspace\.metadata\.plugins or C:\eclipse\workspace\.metadata\.plugins, but I found it in C:\eclipse\workspace\.metadata

Wow, Eclipse 2.1, really? Old stuff.

I can't find this in the menu of WSAD 5 nor in the menu of RAD6. Maybe you have a newer version of Eclipse that isn't integrated yet (although I hear that RAD using Java 5 is coming out soon).

Great! In case it isn't obvious to anyone reading this later, I meant that ".log" was the filename and the rest was the directory.

Yeah. WSAD 5 has been out a good while now and they weren't on the latest version of Eclipse when it came out. I remember how exciting it was to finally be able to use Eclipe 2.1 plugins in RAD.
