Hello All,

I am new to the version control system.Currently i have Eclipse with svn plugin. I tried to checkout a project in eclipse(which was not originally created in eclipse) and i can see errors in some files (only after checking out.original file does not has errors)
I just have a question is there any specific project structure which eclipse supports ?

Thanks in Advance

A project has an invisible ".project" file, and for a Java project, generally some others (".classpath", for example.) All of these are created by Eclipse, and normally you'll just commit these to the repository like any other files, once they're created.

A Java project has one or more "source directories" which specify where the source code is, and it has a "build path" which specifies libraries that are needed. You will probably need to go to the Project Properties dialog and set these up.
