I have installed eclipse ide 3.8.0 in my ubuntu 12.10 but did not know how to create a web project in it.
As i started and moved to file->new-> project
but there is no option for the web projects?
how to do it?
How did you install Eclipse on Ubuntu? Did you use the Ubuntu package manager, or did you download Eclipse from its web site? I never use the one the Ubuntu supplies and always download it from the Eclipse web site.
It sound like you have the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers package. You really need the Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers package (the EE is important!)
Installing it is simple: unpack it somewhere. I place it in /opt, but you can always place it in your home directory. One easy way to unpack is right-click it in the file manager and select "Unpack here". Once unpacked, go into the directory and run the "eclipse" file.
