Broken link in online help | What happens (technically/under the hood) when I link IntelliJ modules to Eclipse project files?

Answered

Hello!

On https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/15.0/import-from-eclipse-page-1.html, the link behind "Procedures: Importing Eclipse Project to IntelliJ IDEApoints to https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/15.0/topicId335.html, which returns a 404.

What I was trying to find out is what happens technically when I activate "Link created IntelliJ IDEA modules to Eclipse project files" on the project import dialogue. Maybe you can help me with that, please?

Brgrds,

Christian

Thanks for the report, I've sent it to the documentation team.

When you link IDEA modules to Eclipse project files, all the changes you make to the module dependencies are also stored in the .classpath files. If you add a jar to a module, you will see the same jar added when opening Eclipse project.
