Hi all,

I'm probably being really dumb, but I've got a JavaScript project and I've got a dynamic webapp project, but I can't find a way to link them so that when I publish the webapp to a server the js files from the JavaScript project are copied into an appropriate place in the war.

I realise I could put them in the webapp project itself, but there are reasons (Maven...) why I would rather have them in their own project.

Thanks for any pointers.

I take it that I'm not being dumb, and there is no way to do this?

If I am interrupting what you are trying to do correctly (and I believe I
am) - this has been an issue / request for quite some time and I believe is
on the list of request / enhancements - not exactly sure when this will be
addressed (that would be a question for the WTP dev team) but you are
correct this cannot be done and the typical response is to use ANT / Maven
to build the project and run it directly in Tomcat

I needed same feature, found an alternative way:
1- Firstly, place javascript files in the webapp project.
2- Then in JavaScript Project, add file links(This can be achieved with New/File/(Check this)Link to file in the file system) instead of real js files.
