Eclipse configuration files

Use this information to learn about Eclipse configuration files.

Each Eclipse project is configured through two XML files - a .project and a .classpath file. Also, a number of preferences and settings can be configured at a project level rather than workspace level. The effect of setting these preferences and settings at a project level is that this configuration, which forms files and entries in a.Settings folder under the project, can be distributed with the project in a team environment.

The configuration is maintained by right-clicking on a project within the Project Explorer view in Eclipse and selecting Properties.
