[eclipse-dev] JRE Woes ...(Maybe my method of attack)

I am trying to create two plugins, one is called SQLNavigator, and the other
SQLEditCommander. I have created the SQLNavigator. This plugin tests
successfully in my Eclipse 2.1.1 and then 2.1. I switched to 2.1 because I
was having auto-detect JRE issue with 2.1.1. I now have lost my JRE with
2.1. I think that I am doing something wrong.
I tried to copy the java code (src) for the java editor example into my
workspace area. Then, things started breaking. How are you supposed to use
others code but in a project with your package and file structure. Here are
my questions ...
1. When doing a new plugin, does Eclipse have to do the wizardry or can I
copy files, rename, hack code, etc. to do this? If so, then how do I keep
from breaking things?
2. Or, are we supposed to keep our projects separate and hand-coded until
they are complete? My issue is, that I suspect that the "dot" files,
.project, metadata, etc. files get confused because of my file name changing
and then the real problem, the auto-detect of the JRE somehow fails.
I also noticed that when I added java files in a directory structure by
extraction of the example zip src for the java editor, that the files were
lost and I suspect because the package name was different. But, Eclipse
would not let me place them there to change the package name.
What am I doing wrong. I have found documentation on the java objects,
classes, interfaces, api, etc. I understand this. My issue is with Eclipse
, the tool development system. I haven't found step by step instruction for
my development scenario. Should I create a blank project and then start
adding things? If I do, at what point will I screw up Eclipse's dynamic
find and load process.
I can rebuild my Eclipse and then re-install my JDK and the JRE issue will
fix itself, but I don't know how long I'll go before I break it again.
Sorry for my confusion if my issue is not clear.
