Try to guess how Eclipse works

Hi,

I'm using Eclipse Indigo in Windows 7 and I don't know how to open a file. That is, when I run Eclipse I display the window to select the workspace what I want to work. After selecting it, I can't find any option to open a project. What I can do only is to open a file. I select the file to open and when I run it, I display a window with two options that are the same for me:

ant build
ant build ...

I run the program twice, each one for every option, and the result is the same: nothing is displayed and I only see the code in the IDE. The program must calculate the area of a triangle.

I move the program's folder to another one and I repeat the same process but it doesn't work.

Why I can't open a project and I can't run the file?

Thanks.

Have you gone through the tutorials provided in the Eclipse help? Look at Help | Help Contents and then under Workbench User Guide | Getting Started and then under Java Development User Guide | Getting Started.

Basically, you first create a project, then then you create files within that project. If you have existing files, you can copy them into a project directory and refresh the project and it will include the files.
