Navigator provides a pure directory hierarchy view of projects. Project Explorer on the other hand uses a view that is closer to what your Eclipse project looks like. For example, it knows about, and lists, externally dependencies; it calls out source directories and displays java source files within package names.

Yes Peter, I figured it out...
So functionally they are the same I guess, I can use either of the one as per my comfort level.

Thank you,
