Organizing a project with folders
To organize our files in a project we can add folders to the project hierarchy. These folders have only organizational purpose, they don't represent real folders on a drive.

Adding a folder
To add a folder to the project hierarchy we click with the right mouse button on the project file:

Add folder to project

Then we select the Add folder... option. JBuilder will show a dialog in which we can fill in a name for the folder. After we close the dialog a folder with the specified name is added to the project.

Adding files to the folder
Now we have a folder in the project it is time to add a file to it.

  1. Right click on the newly created folder.
  2. Select the Add to folder... option.
  3. JBuilder will open a file dialog. We can choose a file to add to the folder.
  4. Click on the Open... button to add the file to the folder.
