Is there a way to open several projects simultaniously

Hello.

I have a number of Ant-based Java programs (core of the projects and it's extensions) that I would like to open simultaniously in IDEA. In Netbeans I just opened project after project and then created a group of projects, so I could open all this projects again.
In IDEA I open first project, but when I open a new one, IDEA asks me if I would like to open new project in a new window or in the same, but no matter what I select I don't see previous project no more.

Is there any way to mimic NetBeans projects group feature in IDEA?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Ivan,

NetBeans' projects correspond to IntelliJ's modules.

I have a number of Ant-based Java programs (core of the projects and
it's extensions) that I would like to open simultaniously in IDEA. In
Netbeans I just opened project after project and then created a group
of projects, so I could open all this projects again.

In IDEA I open first project, but when I open a new one, IDEA asks me
if I would like to open new project in a new window or in the same,
but no matter what I select I don't see previous project no more.

Is there any way to mimic NetBeans projects group feature in IDEA?

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your reply, but I didn't manage to  receive result that I wanted.

If I open Ant-based project and there is several separate directories with code in this project, can whole project be displayed as a single node in a project tree, while all source directories as it's children? Right now I see a separate module for each source directory

I managed to do it. Project Structure -> Modules -> Move Module to Group helped me.
