I just switched over to eclipse today after finding out that the Java course I'm taking next year in uni uses it instead of NetBeans. I'm making a little test project to figure out how to use eclipse but I can't get anywhere with what it keeps doing to my packages. I'm trying to make some nice, neatly organized packages within packages but it keeps deleting subpackages and renaming their parent packages.
What I'm doing to make subpackages, since I can't find any other way to do it, is creating a new package, then right click-> copy qualified name -> paste onto package that I want the new package to be a subpackage of. After this I move my one class from the parent package into the new subpackage and eclipse deletes my subpackage, renames the parent to parentPackageName.subpackageName and then moves the class under the newly renamed parent.
Does anyone know how to force eclipse to stop doing this?
