Hi Sammy,

As you say Eclipse is project based. In order to open the file you need a project. This is kind of hard to get your head wrapped around but its worth it once you do.

Hope this helps!

I thought they were going to add a feature to Eclipse that would allow users to open a java file in the editor - in sort of a default project. Did that functionality never make it into 3.0?
