I'm trying to setup a new project in Eclipse and can't understand where unit tests should be located. In /src or in /src/test? In the same package as source code or in different?

Please, give me a brief guidance.

This is what I found, but looks like Eclipse doesn't follow the guidelines...

Quite often tests are found in a top level directory <ROOT>/test

Unit tests are usually in the same package but different directory. In Eclipse you can add source directories in Project -> Properties -> Java Build Path. Create and add "test" directory. When you want to add JUnit test just right-click class  -> New -> JUnit Test Case. In dialog change "src" to "test" and test class will be created in proper directory.

Create a new source folder in src/test
And within that folder use the same package structure as the classes that r being tested

I can create JUnit test case in Java Perspective, but I don't have such menu item in Java EE Perspective. Why?

In Java Perspective the solution you offer works, in Java EE Perspective I can't do this.

because that perspective is aimed at j2ee development, ie it is more focussed on the application development rather than the classes (an tests) used by the app.
Easiest is to switch perspectives when working on classes and testing them.
