I am a JBuilder newbee. I find with large projects the mass of non-java documents pile up. Folders are a great way of keeping that information at your finger-tips in the Project View. I was suprised to find that once a folder was added there was no way of moving files into them besides removing them from the project and re-adding.

Hence, OrganizeFolders is a simple plug in that allows files and folders to be moved in and out of folders. Simply right-click on the files node selection in the project view and select the "Move To Folder" item in the context menu.

A dialog representing the existing folder tree will be presented. Simply click on the desired folder.

Caveats: This was a quicky. The algorythm is not recursive and so does not differentiate duplicate names in different level folder trees. Also, .java, .class and package nodes are explicitly excluded from this feature so as not to be intrusive to the java packaging scheme.

-Please let me know of any buggies. I've been using it for about a week and tweeking. Seems to be stable and suitable to it's function.
