Search all files in an Eclipse project/package

Hi, I'm new to Eclipse. I tried searching the help files, but didn't see what I was looking for.

Is there a way to search for text in all the files of a project or a package? I'd like to find all occurances of "BoxLayout" in a package I'm working with (which was started by others, so I don't know where everything is).

Thanks in advance.

In Eclipse at the top menu

Go to --> Search --> File

then write the text you are searching in the "containing text" text box. You can also select other options like in the selected resource OR in workspace etc.
You can also filter upon the types of file to be searched for ex: *.jsp etc...

For java seach, you can also find a tab named java search in the same panel.
