that I'd like to try work on in Eclipse. What kind of "project" is
that? How do I bring that into Eclipse's world?

* said webapp being various servlets, JSPs, Beans, utility classes
that set application properties from web.xml or property files or
from the database, Filters, XML and XSLT files, etc., etc.
