I am new to the eclipse IDE.
I am getting error while creating a java project.
The window is displaying like this:
" An error occured while creating java project
see error log for more details ".

Where can I see the error log.What might be the reason for this error?

Vijayk,
If you look at your workspace directory from the file system, you will see a folder called .metadata. The .log file in that folder is the one where the detailed error message is.

Which version of eclipse?
You should be able to open a 'view' from the window menu that will show you the error log. Depends on the version though.

Thanks Gilbert,
I am using eclipse 3.1.2
Now I am able to see the error log through window ->Error Log.
The log is harder to understand, Anyhow the problem is cleared itself

The log is darn near impossible to understand. Unless you're the author of the offending Eclipse subsystem.

Good to hear the problem went away!
