Is there a way to count the number of lines of code in an eclipse project? I can see the total number of lines for each file, but I'd like to see how much is generated across the whole project.

Check out the Eclipse Metrics plugin.

Note the 'Lines of code' statements.

Edit: Version 2 of Metrics, requiring Eclipse 3.5+, is available here

You need to use the JavaNCSS tool, see JavaNCSS - A Source Measurement Suite for Java

I can't find any working links to Eclipse plugins that incorporate this library, only stale broken links.

But you can run it:

Also see JCSC which includes NCSS.
