The Java development tools contribute the following views to the workbench:
Package Explorer View
The Package Explorer view shows a Java-specific view of resources inside Java projects in your workbench.
The Java element hierarchy is defined by the project's build class paths and consists of elements like
- source folders and libraries
- source and class files
- types, methods, fields and initialzers
The Hierarchy view allows you to look at the complete hierarchy for a
type, only its subtypes, or only its supertypes. You can also open the hierarchy on a project, source folder or package.
The Projects view shows Java projects, source folders, external and internal libraries.
Note: source folders and libraries (both internal and external) presented in this view are not expandable.
When they are selected, their contents are shown in the Packages view.
The Packages view shows a list of Java packages from the currently selected Java projects, source folders or libraries.
Typically, the Projects view is used to make this selection.
The Types view shows a list of Java types from the currently selected packages.
Typically, the Packages view is used to make this selection.
The Members shows the content of a type, compilation unit or CLASS file.
