Dynamic Web Application option not available / missing in Eclipse?

When an option to create new Dynamic Web Application is missing/ not available in any version of the Eclipse. Follow the below steps to fix the problem:

Step 1: Click “Help” > “Install new software…”


Step 2: In “Work with:”, paste: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/photon/

Please note that the above link would work on Eclipse photon only so change the link according to your Eclipse version, for example for the Eclipse Kepler the link would be http://download.eclipse.org/releases/kepler/


Step 3: Scroll down to find “Web, XML, Java EE and OSGi Enterprise Development” option and expand it > check:

  • Eclipse Java EE Developer Tools
  • Eclipse Java Web Developer Tools
  • Eclipse Web Developer Tools
  • Eclipse XML Editors and Tools (optional)


Step 4: Finally, click “Next” > Accept the terms of the license agreement and click “Finish” to install the new software. Then a popup would ask your permission to restart the Eclipse. Restart it and you should find the dynamic web project option under project list.
