    Default Use Java 2 Project in different IDE

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to Java and have worked few years using .Net. I am wondering how it can be possible to use/open project from Eclipse IDE to JBuilder.

    Thanks for your guidance

    Create a new project in JBuilder, and then copy and paste all the source files from one directory to the other, along with any other resources. If that doesn't make sense, you are making it too complicated.

    Of course, you won't be able to copy your project settings that way.

    Actually in most of the cases we just cannot import the project. I cannot just added Eclipse project into NetBeans at once. I don't know how may IDEs support this feature.

    I should have been more clear. You can't import a project from one IDE to another, unless one of them has capabilities I don't know about.

    What I meant is, you can create an empty project in the new IDE. Then, you can use Window Explorer (or whatever) to manually copy and paste the source files (keeping the directory structure) into the directory created by the new IDE. Once you refresh your new project, the IDE will see the source files and work with them.

    Steve, what you say is more clear to me in the previous post, and the same thing I'm talking about. :) In most of such cases what I've done is change the default application in the one I want to open it and added it. Something like this, a Java class which is coded on Eclipse change the default application into NetBeans and import it as a Java file.

    I was jumping to the "how" without describing the "why". I'm learning the art of balancing concise and clear.

    It's OK to think differently. ;-)

    As you said I just want to pointed that most of IDEs don't have such a facility to convert projects from one compatible mode to another. And you explain that what is the way to work on that in simple way. ;)
