Hi Guys,


I haven't worked on Java stuff for a while, and recently I need to work on a project with Eclipse. I got a problem when I tried to import a project with a ant build.xml file, I cannot found how to do that any more.

I remember it should show up in the list when I select import a project.now it is not there any more.

Could anyone help me out with that?


Cheers

Use eclipse function*import project* . you can copy the project into eclipse workspace by Ant but Still you need to entry the project in .metadata of workspace

The thing is I cannot find where to import the project by ant. I remember in old version of Eclipse, there was a option called "Import existing project by ant " or something when I tried to import a project. I cannot find it now.

you can find *Ant build file* in export , not in import.

It has been moved to File | New | Project | Java Project From Existing Ant Build File
