    Default importing a project in eclipse

    I am using perforce version control in my company. I have sync some projects from repository. I opened eclipse and i imported an existing project through: file->import->existing projects into workspace->selected the root folder->finish.
    The project came to the project explorer of eclipse. But when i try to access the web.xml file in that project it is opening as a read-only file. I am unable to edit that file. But i need to edit that file. Please give suggestions on this as early as possible.

    Please check the Read Only attribute of file,

    Are you able to edit other files of your project or not

    As these files are in version control, they need to be checkedout for editing. You can add the plugin in eclipse and do it or you have to checkout the file and do the editing.
