I've been a texteditor + command line kind of programmer all the way through school. Now I've gone and gotten a job, and I'm expected to use JBuilder + CVS for programming. It makes sense to keep everyone on the same page. Anyway, as it is, I'm trying to get up to speed before I actually start the job so I installed JBuilder on my mac at home. Now, I'm probably missing something quite obvious, but I'm having a bit of a time trying to get JBuilder to effectively "import" a project.

Here's the situation. I have a program I've half developed w/ editor + terminal + cvs. Now, I've decided it's a good idea to use JBuilder for practice. So, I create a "new project" -> "pull proect from CVS." I select the project that I've been working on, it brings up a status window showing me that it's checking out all the files from CVS. So that's great. But I have nothing in my "project pane". The only thing in there is the ProjectName.jpx file, but in my "file browser pane" I have a "project" folder with seemingly appropriate files/folders. I expected JBuilder to take that directory structure and turn it into the appropriate packages with files in the right places in my project.

I can't drag folders into the project pane, in fact I can't even drag multiple files. I would have to put all the files in the proper packages one by one, which just seems ridiculous. I assume most people use the project pane for navigation/control of what's going on, is that incorrect? Is there a better way to go about this? I'm open for ANY thoughts/suggestions.
