javac will compile classes even if the classes they need only contain java files and no class files (added to classpath of course)

javac can not compile them if you use optfiles and I am guessing eclipse does something similar with it class compilers...however..I am stuck often enough with apps like this and eclipse wont compile my apps because many jars only hava source files and no classes.

Does anyone know of a way/setting to get eclipse to compile in this scenario?

These are all webapps btw.

PS - please dont say compile up the jars...if it was that quick and easy for the apps I am dealing with (13000 jars in one for ex)...I would have considered it Smile

Thanks.
