Eclipse Java Build Directory

Something driving me crazy - I have autobuild set in java eclipse ide and its building to a JAR apparently. Where is the output directory??

I don't see any build folders or anything in the project home folder.

Thanks, Kidovate

How are you examining the project folder? Many of the Eclipse navigation views filter out output folders. Take a look at your project directory with you OS file system browser instead.

The java output directories are configured via Project Properties -> Java Build Path. You can go to that page to see what folders are being currently used.

Note that Eclipse java build does not generate a jar. It generates a directory of classes. To generate a jar, you have to invoke File -> Export -> Jar File wizard or use an external script like ant or maven.
