Add bunch of packages to project

Hi everybody,
I have a web project (about 30 packages with business logic java files and bunch of JSP files) and I want to migrate to IDEA. I created a project in IDEA and don't know how to add all packages into workspace. Maybe it's trivial but I have no clue, how to do it.
Thanks for any help

I just forgot to specify my IDEA version. It's 4.5

I might be wrong, but I think if you paste the root package in the src
folder of the project, it'll work. I didn't test, but it makes sense.
Ah, maybe you have to push "synchronize" button.

Franklin.

Thanks a lot for your help, it probably works, I just have another problem. I put third party classes to my root/exploded/WEB-INF/classes directory but IDEA can not find them. There is error in the import package statement.

You should set up a library for third party classes. Either module level
or project or global one. Checkout Libraries page in Settings|Project|Paths.

The "exploded" folder is just for output; IDEA does not read it. You need to add your third party classes as libraries in your Module Paths settings.

Thanks a lot. I solved the problem, with your help it was peace of cake :)) I just started using IDEA and I really like it.

I was a great fan of JB*ilder, but since I took a deep look at IntelliJ,
I fell in love with it. Besides increase of productivity, with IntelliJ
I make fewer mistakes and/or it shows me where they are.

But I'm starting getting worried... What am I going to do if I don't
have it anymore? For instance, if I'm moved to another project that uses
another language? :S Ok, let's change subject. :) :D

My assumption is that, in the long term, no one is going to green-light a critical project where the base language doesn't support IDEA-quality tooling, as the productivity cost of using inferior tools will be too great. Doesn't help in the short term, though.

Maybe you're right for the long term, but currently I'm earning money by writing C++ code on Solaris servers, no IDE, no visual debugger, just the simplest command line tools... :(
