Continuing the discussion from WebApps built with Gradle/Buildship do not show up as deployable in Eclipse Add/Remove:
This is the same issue I raised several weeks ago. No one responded and I am reissuing it as a bug this time as one of the developers on my team has also run into the same issue. The workaround appears to be, after import, manually converting it to a Faceted Project and adding the Dynamic Web App facet. But this is something that Buildship ought to take care of. Running webapps on a local server in Eclipse is a common use case.
