An Eclipse project can normally be renamed by a right click on the project folder and "Rename...". Every time I try this I get the message "Resource 'Project' is out of sync with file system". I get this message even if I do a refresh using F5. What could be the mistake here? Are there other ways than an export and import to rename the project?
When you open an Eclipse workspace from within a clearcase view and try to rename the project, you will often get the pop-up warning ... “Resource ‘project’ is out of sync with the file system”. If refreshing the project does not fix the problem, then do the following workaround: a. Open workspace WITHOUT being in a view b. Select the project in Project Explorer c. ClearCase -> Associate Project (project should now look like project  ) d. Right click project -> Refresh (vob sub-folders should now be empty) e. Right click project -> Rename ... f. Enter New name
Now you can close the workspace, reopen it in a view and refresh the project. You may also dissociate the project if you prefer the project not to be associated with the vob.
