Subject [jira] Commented: (MECLIPSE-126) mark contents of "target" directory as derived
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2008 23:33:12 GMT


Thomas Ferris Nicolaisen commented on MECLIPSE-126:

+1 on the re-open.

Perhaps it's not correct to use target/derived technique directly if this is hard to achieve
by manipulating Eclipse's meta-data. 

What we want is simply not to encounter build directory resources when (1) opening resources,
and (2) while searching (optionally).

> Eclipse has the notion of "derived resources", which are normally excluded from many
dialogs like the "Open Resource" dialog (Ctrl-Shift-R). Without this marker, all those dialogs
would be cluttered with unrelevant files (which can't be edited anyway because they will be
overwritten on the next build).
> Unfortunately, unlike Eclipse itself, "mvn eclipse:eclipse" does not mark generated files
as derived. A good candidate would be the entire contents of the "target" directory.
