This article discusses two central mechanisms that are
associated with projects in an Eclipse workspace. The first of
these is incremental project builders, which create some built
state based on the project contents, and then keep that built
state synchronized as the project contents change. The second is
project natures, which define and manage the association between
a given project and a particular plug-in or feature.
