hi,

I am trying below example on my other machine.

http://www.srccodes.com/p/article/24/spring-3-mvc-framework-based-hello-world-web-application-example-using-maven-eclipse-ide-and-tomcat-server


when i created
'SpringMVCHelloController.java'
under package
 package com.srccodes.spring.controller;

For me, it is showing folder structure and then sub folder structure as attached where as in the link package structure for the author looks different without any folders. Am i doing anything wrong. I just created'SpringMVCHelloController.java'
 file in default package  then created the package and then moved it to
package com.srccodes.spring.controller;
please advise
Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Look at your screenshot again.... you have your Java file in the package folders under "src/main/resources" whereas it should be under "src/main/java".

When you create a new class (via the "New Class Wizard") the very first input box asks you for the source folder location, make sure this specifies the location as above, ie. java folder not resources folder. Also, rather than creating it in the default package and then moving it, you can specify the package where you want your class created in the 2nd input box in the New Class wizard page.

By "package" folders I was just referring to the folders "com", "srccodes", "spring", and "controller" that are in your screenshot, ie. the folder hierarchy that makes up your package structure. There really is NO difference between what I was calling "source" folders and "package" folders, they are both "source" folders because they contain "source" code. I just said package folders to be specific that the ones that I was referring to were specifically related to the package structure.

Anyway, all of that is irrelevant to your original question. Were you able to create the SpringMVCHelloController.java file in the correct place and get the same view as the author of the tutorial?
