For sure. I am trying to switch to Eclipse, and was working yesterday on a project. Today, I can't figure out how to open it. So I googled, and it brought me back here to the Ranch.

Since this is an ancient thread, clearly this feature has been around a long time.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
