Eclipse is interesting in that you can have folders in your project
(like WEB-INF) and put the "base" package location to be folders under
those folders.  I didn't realize that you could do this until I
installed the tomcat plugin and created a tomcat project.  

It just seems like the more I use this thing the more neat features I
find.  And the more that I like it.  

Also, for those people using struts, there's two different struts
plugins.  The one I've played with "easystruts" will deal with the
struts-config.xml file and has a wizard for creating your actions and
form-beans (and other things).

Ah.  This may be a case of my not knowing the details of how Eclipse 
works.  I've been using NetBeans, where you don't use a classpath but 
instead you mount any directory or JAR which contains classes you wish 
to use.  This "mounting" creates a sort of ClassLoader, which is then 
used for code completion and error-checking.

I sort of assumed that the same was true of Eclipse, but the "importing"

phase was the equivalent of the "mounting" in NetBeans.  So I thought 
you had to "import" every 3rd party library you wanted to use in your 

I will try the technique you describe above, thanks Mark.
