Hi, just got eclipse a few days ago and am very impressed with it.. However I'm having some very fustrating problems setting up my project path structure.. Seems like such a trivial task.

I want my program to have the following file structure

projectfolder (root)
|- src (all my source files)
|- output
|-classes (holds all class files)
|-graphics (all image files program needs)
|-lib (needed jar files)

I set my default output folder to output.

I then check the checkbox to allow output folders for source folders.. I then make it so the src folders output folder is output/classes..

I get the error msg: Cannot nest output folder 'NexGenBaseball/output/classes' inside output folder 'NexGenBaseball/output'

I know if you want to nest src folders you have to add stuff to the exclude option for the parent folder.. Tried same technique for output folders didnt help...

Should i be doing all this in ant? Never used ant..

So i created the src folder for my source files under root. No problems there..

still ok...

Why don't you just set your default output folder to output/classes?
