Importing a Visual J++ 1.1 Project

Importing a Visual J++ 1.1 Project

Visual Studio 6.0

You can open and use Java projects created with Visual J++ 1.1 in the new Visual J++ 6.0 development environment. The following procedure provides the steps for converting these files.

CAUTION   Before importing your Visual J++ 1.1 project, it is important that you understand the new project structure. The new project structure is directory-based in contrast to the file-based structure of Visual J++ 1.1. This change in project structure means that every file that exists in the root directory of your project and all directories below the project root directory are automatically included as part of your project. You can remove files from a new project with the Remove From Project item on shortcut menu. If you remove an item from a project, you can add it back to the project by using the item on Project Explorer's shortcut menu. However, when you delete a file from a project, it is physically deleted from the directory and cannot be recovered from the development environment, but may be recoverable from the Recycle Bin.
