Once you’ve imported a project, you can verify that Liferay IDE correctly recognizes it as a Liferay project.
Here’s how you verify that your project imported correctly as a Liferay project:
Once the project is imported, you should see a new project inside Eclipse and it should have an “L” overlay image; the “L” is for Liferay!
If your project doesn’t have the “L” overlay image, it needs to be faceted for Liferay and/or it needs to be targeted for a Liferay Runtime environment. If it needs faceting, follow steps in the tutorial Faceting a Plugin Project for Liferay IDE.
Check the project’s target runtime and facets to make sure they’re configured properly for your plugin project:
In the Package Explorer, right click your project’s name and select Properties → Targeted Runtimes. In the Targeted Runtimes section, make sure that the proper Liferay Runtime is selected.
Check the project’s facets to make sure they’re configured properly for a Liferay IDE project:
In the Properties window, click Project Facets and make sure that the Liferay plugin facets are properly configured. If your project is not faceted, you can follow the tutorial Faceting a Plugin Project for Liferay IDE to add the necessary facets.
Click the OK button.
Congratulations on verifying that your project imported properly!
