Eclipse Package Explorer

Eclipse Indigo

Have you ever had the irritating scenario where all your Java folders (including the empty ones) appear in Package Explorer even though you have correctly created the build path?

I was getting rather irritated by this intermittent “feature” so I asked a friend!

The simple solution is to filter out the unwanted empty folders.

  • Click on the downwards arrow in the top right hand side of the Package Explorer window
  • Select Filters and then make sure that “Empty Packages” is ticked

Now you will see a much cleaner representation of your project in Package Explorer
