Can anyone offer/is there any guidance on configuring an eclipse project for jbidwatcher development? I am new to Java (coming from C++) but I am keen to learn and possibly help in small ways to keep jbidwatcher trimmed.

A problem I had initially in eclipse was getting the properties and icons in a place where they could be found at run time. I ended up adding my jbidwatch project root (jbw) to the build source path like so:

[project > properties > Java Build Path > Source > Source Folders On Build Path]
jbw/src # no surprise here
jbw # without this various resources in the root and /icons were not being copied to the output folder.

[project > properties > Java Build Path > Source > Default Output Folder]

jbw now runs so I can start to explore it :) However I am sure I have used a sledgehammer to crack a nut above – as just about all the project sub-directories are being copied to jbw/bin – but perhaps thats as it should be?

Adding the JBidwatcher project root to the source path is pretty much canon for how I resolve that. (I don’t use Eclipse, but IDEA has a similar concept.)

The source subdirectories should be being copied to jbw/bin, but with .class files instead of .java files. Is that what you’re seeing?
