Java Views

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
  • packages
  • source and class files
  • types, methods, fields and initialzers

Hierarchy View

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.

Projects View

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.

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.

Types View

The Types view shows a list of Java types from the currently selected packages. Typically, the Packages view is used to make this selection.

Members View

The Members shows the content of a type, compilation unit or CLASS file. Typically, the Types view is used to make this selection.

View Customization

Both the appearance and behavior of the Java views can be customized.
