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?

Eclipse will colapse packages if there is nothing in them because each part of a package is just a folder. So if your main package is com.zman.project and you have a class in the project folder, you will see a com.zman.project package listed in Eclipse. Now if you create and put a class in items, but not in world you will only see and no Once you add a class to you will see that package displayed. You can also add subpackages by just adding a new package and entering the full name. For example if I want to create an entities package in I would just open up the new package dialog and type in You can also specify the package when creating a new class if the package you want it to go into is not currently being displayed by Eclipse.
