I have recently started a new college course in Object Oriented Programming with Java, and our professor is having us work in the environment of Eclipse. I find myself struggling because I am used to working with DrJava, which is much simpler to work with. I'm having trouble grasping the concept of breaking the whole project into various classes and what not. Keep in mind I am still a beginner, and probably don't understand these things because a lack of knowledge... Is there anyone that can explain how Eclipse works in comparison to DrJava? That'd be awesome!
