I'm looking for a way to group "shortcuts" to files together in a seperate folder or workbook. My problem is that the current project i am working on now has over 15,000 classes and is using Struts. Trying to group all the pieces I need together for specific functionality is impossible. It would be nice to be able to just click on a folder and it would show all the files I need to configure (Action, Form, related JSPs, struts-config.xml, etc.) for a specific piece I am working on versus having to comb through thousands of files everytime I have to make a change.

Is there a way to group files together in a project through Eclipse that anyone knows of? Maybe a plugin? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Hi pyper john,

Have you tried working sets?

In the package explorer's pull down menu choose 'Select Working Set...' then New..., Java, Next. Now give your working set a name (i.e. 'my groovy action set') and choose the files to put in the set (groovy.jsp, groovyAction.java, groovyForm.java etc) and you should be good to go. Then when you want to see the whole project again just choose 'Deselect Working Set...'.

Hope this helps!
