How does a JEX import work?

What is the procedure for importing a JEX file, when you already have notes inside Joplin?
Will the imported notes overwrite the existing notes?
Are existing notes deleted first?
Can I just import a JEX backup on top of an existing installation?
Will it an import merge with existing data, or overwrite it?
Thank you.

The notes will be imported as new notes in a separate directory. Your existing notes won't be changed or deleted.
