Hi all !

This is my first post @ Eclipse and I am new to Eclipse. I am a beginner in Java. I had been using Edit Plus . I create .java files in Edit Plus and compile and run in the command prompt. I find this very convenient.

Though the same can be done in Eclipse too, but by default, I need to create a New Project and then Package and Class file and then creating .java files. Compiling and running can be done in Eclipse itself or in the command prompt.

I do not need project and packages as of now as I am beginner , I am trying to get comfortable in java by trying with lot of basic programs in java for which packages and projects not needed.

My question is : Can we create .java files without creating project and packages ( as I used to do in Edit Plus ) and save it and compile it in command prompt ?



Thanks & Regards
Geek Bits

The short answer is no. Eclipse organizes things into projects. You're
going to find the concept easier after you've done it. You can create a
single project and put all your sample code inside it to run and debug.
You'll see, it will save you a lot of time.

Use the simple Java Project.
