Thanks guys.

I created a java project. Near as I can tell I associated it with our IFS network drive. When I open source through the same IFS filter, I still have the same issue. I go to the project and try to browse for source there and I see a src folder but it doesn't open. I tried selecting Source > Organize Imports. That gives me the following errors:

Problems while organizing imports on some compilation units. See 'Details' for more information.
IFS Java Source/Java/get_template.java: Compilation unit has parse errors. No changes applied.
IFS Java Source/Java/EMail.java: Compilation unit contains ambiguous references. User interaction required.
IFS Java Source/Java/msgsend.java: Compilation unit contains ambiguous references. User interaction required.

I am kind of worried that this is going to be copying the java source to my workspace instead of using it on the IFS.

project. Does anyone have any tips?

Try mapping the IFS location to a network drive and then create a java project there.

Then use the java perspective to edit, compile, & debug your code.

I'm with David - making a project over your existing code is much nicer
than the way I usually hack this up. I use Windows File Explorer to
navigate to the folder, open a command window (Windows Power Tools) and
edit via Code/400. Use the command window to javac and possibly test.

Do it David's way. The hairs on your head will thank you.
