Description Dimi Paun 2006-03-27 18:07:17 UTC
Description of problem: Native Eclipse does not recognize workspaces created with the Java Eclipse. This makes the native Eclipse unusable in my case. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1 How reproducible: Always. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open native Eclipse 2. Point it to existing workspace 3. Actual results: It display the Welcome page, as if it had a brand new workspace Expected results: It should open it as I last saved it. Additional info: Let me know if you need anything from the .metadata directory.

This seems to be working now, sorry for the false alarm. Not sure what went wrong, or what I did right, but I somehow convinced it to recognize my previously created workspace. Howevever, I do get an exception now whenever I open said workspace: Problems occurred restoring workbench. Unable to restore perspective: Workspace - Java. Internal error activating an Editor. The desktop is restored, but the Package View is missing, and I can not find it anywhere... Is this expected behaviour?

If you use a workspace that has been created with an Eclipse that has plugins that are not installed with the current version, you will get a message similar to that. Have tried getting the package explorer back by doing: Window -> Show View -> Package Explorer If that doesn't work, can you post a screenshot of: Help -> About Eclipse SDK -> Plugin Details Try to make that window as big as possible and include as many of the jdt plugins as your screen will allow. Can you also post your workspace/.metadata/.log file. Thanks.

Adding the Package Explorer from: Window -> Show View didn't work as I could not find it. I've attached a screenshot of the fully expanded Window -> Show View IIRC, it resides in a 'Java' group that doesn't even appear in my case. Strange. I've added screenshots of Help -> About Eclipse SDK -> Plugin Details I had to do it in two pages to include everything. I've also included my .metadata/.log file as you requested. Please let me know if you need any more information.

<blush>I haven't installed all plugins</blush> Yes, now I get the "Package Explorer", and the error is gone as well. Everything works fine now, this is not a bug.
