Subject RE: Eclipse setup questions
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 12:47:33 GMT

If you're using the basic version of Eclipse you may want to consider the following.

Eclipse allows you to use Unix-like symbolic links. 
i.e. allows you to create a directory beneath your current project which is actually a link
to a directory located elsewhere in your file system.

At the simplest level using this information you could define an output folder for your project
in the "Source" tab of the Java Build Path property for your project. 
End result, your output is located outside your work space.

A more flexible alternative would be to investigate using ANT ( which
is quite well integrated with eclipse.
You could define different compile targets for your various output destinations. ANT is flexible
enough to allow you to create jar files and distributable WAR files for your web applications.

I hope this gets you going in the right direction.
