 Hi Janet,
This issue is an Eclipse configuration issue more than a RTC issue.
To show ".*" files in Exclipe Project Explorer, in the Package Explorer view, you can click View Menu -> Customize View -> Filters -> uncheck .* resources

The easiest way is to use the Navigator view, which serves slightly different purpose to the Project Explorer view.
The Navigator view provides a hierarchical view of the resources in the Workbench including hidden files.

This (Project Explorer) view provides a hierarchical view of the artifacts in the Workbench, which is customized by the specific configuration of your Workbench.
