Hi,

I am working with Eclipse on PC for my Java needs. I now need to shift my Eclipse usability to a laptop. I have loaded Eclipse on the laptop and I have created a directory called workspace in my documents folder (same as my PC). When I turn on Eclipse in the Laptop and select the workspace that has my current project, Eclipse loads with nothing in its package explorer. Why does it not see my project?

How can I move my eclipse projects from PC to PC?

Thanks,

waffe

You need to import the project(s)

Once your projects are known on various computers, you may do cross development,
if only you take newer sources (and settings) with you and do 'refresh' on a project
to let eclipse know that you created new files elsewhere.

just copy your entire workspace (directory) onto your laptop, thats all you need to do.

Objects I have allready done as you say but Eclipse shows up empty in the package explorer; I must be missing something!?

CHEJ importing works perfectly, I can't believe I didn't think of that - sometimes I really feel like a noob!

yopu must have been pointing at the wroing workspce, or didn't copy over *all* the files.
Importing is unnecessary, and undesirable as you'll also need to change your workspace settings.

Hmmm... I only copied over the folder inside of the workspace and not the folder called “workspace”, which is probably the problem. I'll look into it further – thanks objects, I owe you one!!!

objects, I had problems copying the workspace from Windows to Linux, even converting text files.
