i developed one j2ee application without using any ide.the folder structure is like this.
myapp (root)
-assemble (generated ear file by ant build file is placed here)
-infracture(logos,javascript validations etc)
-lib (all class files)
-com(i plaaced all source files for servlets,ejbs,daos etc)
-dd( i placed deplyment descriptors here)
i am using ant to build and deploy my application.so i used the random directory structure like the above.
now my requirement is that i need to configure my application in eclipse.is it possible for me to maintain the same directory structure as above in eclipse if i import those to eclipse. how to import my application to eclipse

If you continue using Ant to build the ear, you can use any directory structure you want. Just import the project. Then set the project's source directories and set the build directory to lib.

One note: "lib" usually means 3rd party jars rather than source code .class files.
