I started coding again on my old project in netbeans but i have no idea what kind of a prject it is, for example, is it javaEE or whatever.
like in the image attached.
How can i find out what my current project type is?
I'd recommend that you check the Lookup of the project for clues as to its type. The Lookup for most project types should contain a ProjectInfo and a Properties object, and possibly other unique things. By checking the existence and content of these things, you could probably find some differences between the common project types and then be able to tell them apart. there is no easy way or api to identify this. if it is a previous netbeans project you could look at the 'project.xml' found in the 'nbproject' directory of your netbeans project.
