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.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
