index.php/fa/42779/0/I name the java project "swing1" and the name is not valid,
The Error says that "The name of the new project must be 'Swing1'". (index.php/fa/42779/0/)

But when i change the name to "Swing1". The Error "A project with this name already exists." appears. (index.php/fa/42780/0/)

Can anyone explain this funny situation?

Thank you.

The Windows file system is not case sensitive, so you cannot have a folder named swing1 and also a folder named Swing1 (or any other case variation, e.g., SWING1) in the same parent folder.

Thank you very much for your answer, @Ed Merks!
Sorry ,I'm confused about how to describe the problem. I will create a new topic that describe my problem more clearly.
