Java – How to display eclipse project type


In Eclipse IDE there are icons to display the project type, but I can't find a text description. I would expect right click -> properties to show this info but according to this all projects are of type "project" (even if they are a java project, or maven project etc.)

Does anyone know?


Best Solution

According to this, you won't find the text description in Eclipse GUI.

One way is to go to the root folder of your project, open the file named .project and check the elements in the tag <natures></natures>.

But don't worry about that, these icons are often explicit.
