I use Eclipse, but I'm begining in Java. So, I'm trying work with NetBeans 6.1. I build a project and I opened a file created in Eclipse. So, I'm not to run into my project this file. How can I do to attach into my projects or to run into IDE NetBeans 6.1? My english is bad.

If you are new to NetBeans and Java, you might want to either look at some tutorials on the NetBeans site (or google for some), or get a book such as Java EE 5 Development with NetBeans 6.

By the way, Eclipse projects and NetBeans projects are not compatible. Each uses different mechanisms to manage project information. It might be best to create a new project in NetBeans and copy over the source files that you want from the Eclipse project.

If you really want to get Java into your brain work through these books:


I agree. Here's the link:
