So, I'm going crazy here. This is day 2 of me trying to get a simple spring boot app working on intellij. I had tried the springinitializer wizard. The problem was that, all of a sudden, my .java files, and folder, disappeared from the project view. So I decided the best thing to try was to create a maven project, through the wizard, accepting all defaults; then copy my pom.xml dependencies from my failed spring boot wizard, then, hey presto, I'd have a spring boot app. The next thing I know, I'm seeing the same behaviour, namely, I can't view a 'java' folder in my project view. Then when I attempt to view the file in my terminal, the path shows me that the file TheClass.java is actually in the 'test' folder.
Look, I need to get a spring boot project working with intellij today, please help --that 'frttt.txt' file was just some sanity checking I was doing.
