Resolution: Won't Fix
Affects Version/s: 2.7.0.RELEASE
Fix Version/s: 2.8.0.M1
Issue reported on forum here:
It looks like STS is somehow changing the behavior of the 'Import Existing Projects' wizard to ignore the name attribute in the .project file.
- create a "General" empty project.
- edit the project's .project file to change the name attribute to something else
- import this project into another workspace with the "Import existing projects" wizard.
- the import wizard will use the name of the folder instead of the name in the .project file for the project.
One might think, this is an Eclipse bug not an STS bug, but a Vanilla Eclipse does not exhibit the problem and correctly uses the .project given name.
I have checked this with an E362 and E37RC3. Should probably double check also with a 37Release, but did not have one around at the time.
In any case, it seems there's enough evidence to point the finger at something STS is doing to be the cause of the problem. So should look into it further.
