*NOTE*: JBuilder will show ".project" for all Eclipse projects. If you download the testfilemarker, another OpenTool for coloring test files, you would see the directory name instead in the project tree.

This is an OpenTool that can open project files from other IDEs. This is an initial version that just opens the Eclpise and IDEA project file so that you can use JBuilder. Due to author's bad experience with Eclipse, Eclipse project support will be highest priority so that no one has to suffer.

* Open .project file of Eclipse, parses source path, test path, library path and output path, run configuration for java application and single tests
* Open Eclipse workspace as a project group by opening the .lock file under .metadata directory (JBuilder insist on the fact that a project group has to be a file so that is what I settled with)

* Cannot open project files from other IDEs like netbeans yet
* Cannot save the changes made to the project through JBuilder
* Due to JBuilder's limitation, cannot support multiple output directories in one project. As a result, you will need to do a rebuild if your project has that. Cannot change JBuilder's project group support to be more like other IDEs.
* Not supporting source attached to your library jar file, yet.
* For Eclipse, it is assuming that all projects of the workspace is the direct directory of the workspace at the moment.
