I would like to use eclipse as a Java IDE for projects that we have already started.
1. I would like to leave the directory hierarchy unchanged.
2. I would like to decide which packages within the directory hierarchy I want to build.
3. I would like to leave the class files in the same directory as the source files.
Package COM.lotus.coc.lib in /rd/COM/lotus/coc/lib
Package COM.lotus.coc.db in /rd/COM/lotus/coc/db
Package COM.lotus.coc.tool in /rd/COM/lotus/coc/tool
Note: There are many other projects in the COM/lotus/coc directory hierarchy that I do not included in this project.
in lib I load getOpt.class (compiled from getOpt.java)
in db I load openConnection.class (compiled from openConnection.java)
in tool I have tool.class (with the main compiled from tool.java)
in tool I also have other.class (compiled from other.java)
in tool I also have version.txt that I read from to build version.java and then compile into version.class
In my source code control system (accurev) I have getOpt.java, openConnection.java, tool.java, other.java, buildverjava.ksh, and version.txt
I have a makefile in COM/lotus/coc/tool that I use to compile my class files and generate version.java (runs buildverjava.ksh with version.txt as input) to record tool version information.
eclipse will not let me build a new project from the class rool directory rd. If I try to run in /rd/COM/lotus/coc/tool eclipse builds another directory hierarchy starting at COM.
