Hi, Up until now Ive been coding java in my owntime using basic text editors in windows and Linux. Im looking for something thats a bit more powerful that will save me development time. Ive decided to use Forte as its free and I dont want to shell out big bucks for a commercial product, and for what I need to do, Forte fits the bill. One question that I have is regarding Projects in Forte. I thought that when a new project was created, Forte would create a folder for that project, kinda like in Visual C++? That way I could handily organise all my class files. But it seems that I cant create projects in other folders under the sampledir unless I want these folder to be packages? Any tips or best practices on project management in Forte would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mark
Hi Mark It took a while for me to realize that what I think of as classpaths are "mounted filesystems" in Forte. So, if you want to include something in your classpath, you have to mount a filesystem. It's just a matter of terminology, but still confusing. But if you haven't gone too much into Forte, I suggest you use Eclipse. See the Forte Performance thread in this forum..
