Double folder bug on new Roo project
When creating a Roo project at an external location, the project is created two levels deep instead of just one.
i.e. with the following specified in the new Roo project wizard:
project name -> roofoo
external project location -> c:\dev\projects\roofoo
the resulting directory structure created is:
When creating the project under the workspace, a single level is created, as expected even though the read only path shown is similar to that for the external location:
Using STS 2.6.0 with all the latest patches, Win 7 64 bit, Roo 1.1.2.RELEASE configured, 1.1.3.BUILD_SNAPSHOT set as default

What you describe looks about right to me. You specify a folder for your project and a project name which results in a new sub directory named after your project. If this is not what you think should happen you can ask in the STS forum or open a improvement ticket for STS so the STS team can provide more insight.

Sure, you can interpret it that way, Stefan, but the minor issue I'm bringing up is that the path that appears in the Location field should be symmetric for both external and workspace locations. That is, if the Location field shows this (not editable, but visible) when I choose a workspace location:
I would expect that the project would be created in a 'roobar' directory at this location, with a final project path being:
Then, at least the behaviour and feedback would be the same for external and workspace projects. As it is, when you create a project under the workspace location, what you see in the Location field doesn't match the expectation you have from what you get when you create a project under an external location with a similarly structured path. What I'm suggesting is that when you create a project under the workspace, the Location field should show just:
Let me know if it's not clear what I'm saying.
