What is the equivalent project file for a Java project?  For example, a C# project file is denoted by the delimiter of .csproj.  So what would it be for a Java project?  Is it dependent on what IDE I am using for Java?

I did some search online about this and it seems to me that the answer to this question is dependent on the IDE. From memory, it seems to me, that all I have to do is drop the JAVA files into an IDE and then, somehow, a project file is automatically generated. I do not want to be steered in the wrong direction on this and so I want to first ask around for guidance.

What I have tried:

I have not tried anything just yet.

Short answer: Yes, it depends on your IDE.

Why not just try it yourself? You're unlikely to do any real damage with a simple "Hello, World" style project. You could even try different IDEs.

You first need to decide which IDE to use. Netbeans is probably the default for Java, although Eclipse has been in the past. Install one of the IDEs and do some experimenting.
