Eclipse and Pre-Exisisting files

I have some JAVA files that I created using JCreator. I did not create a Project or any packages. There are just a few JAVA files that work together for my application.
What I would like to do is import these files into a new Project in Eclipse. Does anyone know how to open exisisting files into a new or existing project in Eclipse?
Thanks.

From the menu File Import, at least in R1.0.
In the Help, at least for R1.0, see
Java Development Users Guide
Tasks
Importing and Exporting with the JDT
Adding Source Code as Individual Files.
By the way, I found that the online Workbench and Java Development User Guides didn't take long to read, and were a big help. (The print versions version were messed up.) As understand it, they are in the process of finishing the 2.0 documentation, so if you are using current builds instead of R1.0, I'm not sure what kind of documentation you have.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
