I tried to add new external jar file xalan-2.7.1.jar through build path in eclipse but i am getting error " in your project .classpath is read only". After that alert i didn't find my jar file in project. I tried changed the permissions of .classpath file in project , but it does not allow to change permissions.
And one more thing is ".classpath" file is hidden in my project.
I need to import this jar file into my project , it is allowing to add but i could n't find that jar file in extjars location in my project. Still i am facing the same problem.

Do you mean this .classpath file is a registered SCM source file? What do you mean when you say ".. I did a checkout of this file"?
