    Default This project needs to migrate WPT metadata

    Hi! I run Eclipse 3.4.2 on Windows XP. We work with a fairly large collection of J2EE projects of mixed types. The workspace I am currently in uses Java 1.5 and Weblogic 9.2.

    Periodically, a web project will show up with an error icon, and the message is the thread title: This project needs to migrate WPT metadata.

    The project still runs. But here's my question: where can I look to get more information about why this "error" is being reported? There have been times when a "clean" and a re-build has done it, but not in this case.

    Default That's WTP metadata

    Sorry for the typo.

    try that link. It gave a solution and posted a link to more information.

    Thanks, I'm working my way through those suggestions.

    I just noticed that there is information in the Type column of the Problems tab, namely, "ModuleCore Validation Marker". A search or two along those lines may well help, too.

    After looking at those exchanges, I compared the .project file with those of other web projects in the workspace. Then, I took out a bunch of natures and ... the error was gone! All I retained were:

    <nature>org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.web.WebNature</nature>
    <nature>org.eclipse.jdt.core.javanature</nature>

    A more wholesale approach: go to Windows, Preferences, Validation, and turn off the ModuleCore validator. Rather like putting tape on the Check Engine light, but I could detect nothing actually going wrong, and all these flagged projects made the real errors harder to find.
