Subject eclipse:eclipse vs. resources:resources and source folders on build path
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2008 13:06:33 GMT
I'm going to try and be brief...
Maven version: 2.0.9
Java version: 1.6.0_10
OS name: "windows xp" version: "5.1" arch: "x86" Family: "windows"

I use the tomcat-maven-plugin to run my application in-place (mvn 
tomcat:run).

I have a bunch of resources I need to filter so I have:
        <resources>
          <resource>
            <directory>src/main/config</directory>
            <targetPath>../../src/main/webapp</targetPath>
            <filtering>true</filtering>
            <includes>
              <include>**/index.html</include>
              <include>**/log4j.properties</include>
              <!-- etc. -->
            </includes>
          </resource>
        </resources>
Note how the target path is in the src tree - I have a bunch of 
non-filtered resources that exist in that directory.

If I update my eclipse configuration (mvn eclipse:eclipse) the directory 
src/main/config is added as a Source folder on the build path, and hence 
any subsequent change to my build path (manually adding a jar or running 
mvn eclipse:eclipse again) results in the target path (src/main/webapp) 
being erased, complete with a couple of thousand files, potentially with 
local changes.

So why does eclipse:eclipse add this directory as a source path?  Is 
there a way of stopping this from being added?  Alternatively, is there 
a way to tell eclipse to not delete the contents of this location when a 
rebuild is necessary?  If neither of these things are possible I guess I 
will need to somehow restructure my project, but it is not obvious how I 
will be able to do so while maintaining the
benefit of being ale to run tomcat in-place.

Does anyone have some answers or advice on a path forwards?

Thanks,

Scott
