<h1>Converting Java Projects to Plug-in Projects</h1>

<p>PDE provides a <strong>Converting Java Projects to Plug-in Projects</strong>
 wizard to quickly and easily utilize PDE capabilities from a Java Project.  To
 open this wizard right-click on a Java project, open the <strong>Configure</strong>
 menu and select <strong>Convert to Plug-in Projects...</strong>.
<p>During the conversion process, PDE will add its nature and builders to the project,
 add the Plug-in Dependencies classpath container.  Finally, PDE will create a MANIFEST.MF and for the project if they do not already exist.  If <strong>Enable API analysis</strong>
 is selected, the API Tools project nature will be added to the project.

 PDE projects. 
 By default, the projects selected in the workspace are the projects
 selected for conversion by the wizard.
