Converting Java Projects to Plug-in Projects
PDE provides a Converting Java Projects to Plug-in Projects
wizard to quickly and easily utilize PDE capabilities from a Java Project.
The wizard is available under the PDE Tools menu in the
context menu of any Java Project.
During the conversion process, PDE will add its nature and builders to the project,
add the Plug-in Dependencies classpath container. Finally, PDE will create a MANIFEST.MF and
build.properties for the project if they do not already exist.
You may select any of the open projects in your workspace which are not already
By default, the projects selected in the workspace are the projects
selected for conversion by the wizard.
