kprice9c922d82006-08-30 22:07:19 +000030

32the Navigator view <span><span class="uicontrol">Menu</span></span> button. Resources
kprice7c1722f52006-05-08 19:17:37 +000033can be filtered by name, project type or content type. Files beginning with

syeshin53f4c652005-07-28 15:41:59 +000066will update the run-time project class path and Java build settings to include the referenced
