Eclipse (Opening project files)

Axter asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm primarily a C++ developer, with most of my experience using VC++.  In VC++ when you want to open a project, you select a *.vcproj or *.sln.

I can't seem to figure out what is project file equivalent in Eclipse.
When I move a folder containing all the Java Project files to another machine, I'm not able to get the project open using Eclipse.
When I run Eclipse, it ask for a path, which I give it top level folder path to my project.
After which, I select Project Explorer, and nothing is listed.

What do I have to do to get Eclipse to see the project?

FYI:  I have no problems view the project on the original machine I created the project in.
