it must be in different folder. Eclipse has concept of showing contents under soruce folder, plus you can the same in real folder (with different name)

Add a snapshot will illustrate your problem clearly.

This is an artifact of the way Eclipse displays source files. It lets you see the file within a directory structure (the Demo.java you have highlighted), and it also presents a view where source files are grouped by package (the Demo.java within the "(default package)" group. These are just two views of the exact same file.

I don't know why you don't also see A.java twice: it could be due to the type of project you created, or it could be due to the fact that you are creating classes without packages (which is frowned upon, you should always have a package statement as the first line of your source file.)
