Netbeans question: can I edit files without the project structure?

Hi, I am using Netbeans 5.0 now.

It's pretty convenient in some ways, but I would really like to use its editor on java files without having to create a project and all of the trees and subtrees and other stuff that netbeans creates.

Is there a way to just put it in "editor mode", so I can make new files, save them, edit them, and use the NetBeans cool features like color coding and code completion?

Thanks.

Kentaro.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
