I am currently going through a JPPF (Java Parallel Processing Tutorial) and for this, I downloaded some folders with libraries and classes that are some kind of templates for a project using this technology. Now, during the tutorial I have to add code to these classes, to compile and run them. Now, the main problem is that I do not know how to use this folder structure to get compile inside Eclipse.
These folders look like this:
As you can see, there are 2 big folders(indeed, there are 4 at all but the other 2 folders look same like these):
- JPPF-3.2.2-admin-ui this folder has a config sub-folder, the library and the lib-src folder which contains the classes where I have to add code and to compile them
- JPPF-3.2.2-application-template this folder has the classes inside a chain of sub-folders, under src folder
Now, my big problem is how to make these programs to compile and maybe even run (running is not that important, it looks like i can run them using the batch file that is created) inside Eclipse? Eclipse does recognize these folders to import them as projects, and does not even work to convert them into source folders. I have also tried to right click and Run on the files which contain the main method but it does not work at all.
So ... what am I doing wrong and what should I do to have these projects getting compiled in Eclipse?
