Hey everyone Smile

I'm having trouble with Java packages.
Whenever I create a sub package to a package I have, instead if putting it under the super package it puts it besides it, and names it <super package name>.<package name>

For example:

I have a super package named "LearningModding" that has classes of its own. I added a few sub-packages that have classes of their own too: confing and proxies.
Instead of putting "config" and "proxies" packages below the super package, it named them "LearningModding.config" and "LearningModding.proxies", and put them in the same level as the super package.

I tried everything to make it work. (Currently I'm learning how to mod a Minecraft mod. I'm following a YouTube guide. He uses Eclipse too, and in his videos the packages are under their supers.)

Thanks Smile

two comments:

- semantically speaking, Java does not have a concept of "super packages", which would "contain" "child packages". The fact that package names are mapped to nested directories in the file system is a purely organizational issue.

- in JDT's Package Explorer you can choose between two "Package Presentations": "Flat" vs. "Hierarchical".
