I am beginner in Java and new to Eclipse. I initially used Edit Plus and I feel it very convenient to create .java file and compile it in the command prompt. I recently started using Eclipse but not able to create .java files without project and packages. As I am a beginner , I want to try lot of basic programs to understand the concepts for which packages and project not required.
1 ) Can .java files be created and compiled in the Eclipse without project and package creation as I do it in Edit plus ?
2 ) Also, when I tried creating a new project and want to put all the files that into that project. I right clicked the project and click import and selected the files. Now I have many .java files under my project same. I removed Exlcude buildpath for each .java file ( so that it recognizes different mains in each .java files - Not sure this is correct way of doing it or not ) and tried compiling it. But it shows error in the main function line. Though all are simple programs using Println, but I am not able to rectify the errors.
I do not want to go back to Edit Plus as Eclipse is widely used and I want to get comfortable with Eclipse. Please do help.
Thanks & regards
