The Google Plugin for Eclipse is deprecated and will be removed in January 2018. Migrate to Cloud Tools for Eclipse and/or the GWT Eclipse Plugin as soon as possible to avoid disruption.

Project Validations

Google Plugin for Eclipse performs verifications to ensure that your project is properly configured. If any problems are detected, the problems are displayed in the Problems view. You can activate quick-fixes for these problems by selecting the problem in the Problems view, and hitting Ctrl-1 (or Command-1 on the Mac).

For each Google SDK your project uses, the validator will verify that:

  • the SDK exists on disk
  • the SDK libraries are on the build path

For projects that use a WAR directory, the validator verifies that:

  • the WAR directory exists on disk
  • the project has a <WAR>/WEB-INF/web.xml file

If the WAR directory is used for launches and deploys (configurable in project properties: Google > Web Application), the validator also checks that:

  • the output directory is set to <WAR>/WEB-INF/classes
  • the libraries on your build path (including SDK libraries) exist in <WAR>/WEB-INF/lib

For App Engine projects in particular, the validator verifies that the project has a <WAR>/WEB-INF/appengine-web.xml file.

Note: You can change the default severity of any type of problem with Preferences > Google > Errors/Warnings.
