    Default Importing old System into eclipse

    Hi guys,

    Sorry if the title does not relate to my question. I did not know how to describe it well.

    So to cut a long story short. I have a java system/application. All of the source code is nicely spread through multiple directories. The previous guy(who wrote the system) did not leave any project files and I am trying to figure it out if I can somehow import all of the files into eclipse so I can further develop it.

    Thanks

    Try to create a project from existing source: File>New>Java Project; click the exisiting source button, select the directory where the source files are stored and see what happens.

    kind regards,
