I have created a project from terminal and i was able to run successfully. When try to configure eclipse for the same project, but the project is not visible in eclipse. Hence, i am not able open and run my project in eclipse.

here is the steps i followed.

cd path/to/catkin/workspace

catkin_make --force-cmake -G"Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_ECLIPSE_MAKE_ARGUMENTS=-j8

After running the above command, .project and .cproject files are created in the <catkin_workspace>/build directory. then i tried to import my project Click File -> Import -> Existing Projects into Workspace (Next) -> Browse (browse to catkin_workspace -> My project is not visible here :-( ,

i noticed my project is not appearing in the .project file. why my project is missing in .project and how can i open it in eclipse. Can anyone please help me on this?

I followed this link After following this link, problem solved. ROS source packages can be found in build directory that was imported in eclipse. we can not find the packages directly in eclipse existing projects while importing. we have to first import build directory, it has a source directory for all our packages. It is important to build the project in eclipse (ctrl+b) immediately after importing to avoid semantic errors.
