Hi,
You can open the Properties page of the project, select Java Build Path and try "Link Source" button in the Source Tab .

thankyou,
With your suggestion, I can associate the source folder with some folder
outside my workspace, but what about the output folder ? Can I make the
output folder linked to a folder outside my project (its ok if its in the
same workspace )?
That does not appear possible...
I need this to be able to automatically update a library directory which all
my webapp modules in the ear project share. I want to do this independant of
ant builds.

Yes, that does not seem possible. It can be placed anywhere inside the project scope.

I think I founid the answer. I had never tried the eclipse linked folders
feature. I just created linked folders under my project for my output folder
and it seems to work. At least as far as putting the generated classes into
it.
I wish this feature was in a more obvjous place! anyway its an eclipse thing
not WTP project specific...
Now I have another problem. Getting WTP to ignore the .svn folders inside
the linked folders... somehow the exclude folders options does not seem to
work. sigh. this should not be so much work/
