Is there anyway to use Eclipse without having to place anything you want to work on inside that blasted workspace directory?
Thanks,

Create a new Project.
In the 'New Java Project' dialog box, Uncheck 'Use default' and then specify the Directory where your source code resides...
Have recently started using Eclipse...must say its neat the way everything fits together.

There's also the notion of 'links' in version 2.1. Select File > New > File and then the Advanced >> button. In version 3.0M4, you can also open arbitrary files directly (see Open External Files).

OK, I have created a new project and not used the default path. Is there any way to remove certain packages from the project without deleting them from the directory? I mean, I have a decent size package structure and the eclipse project is located at the top level of it(else the packages will not compile correctly). I would like to be able to remove packages that are not needed from the project structure without deleting them. Anyone know if it is possible?
Best Regards,
