I have the following project:

As you can see, there is a huge list jars files that is cluttering the
"Project Explorer" view.

How can I filter out these jar files from the view?

You can hide all jars in pkg explorer:
- In the Package Explorer, open the view menu and select "Filters... "
- unselect "Libraries from external"
- unselect "Libraries in project"
- hit [ OK ]

In addition to the advice Michael already provided, I'll suggest that
you look at the Java Browsing perspective. I find it much more efficient
to use for navigating Java projects than Project Explorer, especially
when I attach a Navigator view as a Fast View for quick access to
non-Java files in the projects.

Hope this helps,
Eric

And there's Mylyn if you want contextual filtering (ie., filter out
everything until it's marked "important" by virtue of your selecting or
opening a file).

If you're using Eclipse 3.4, you can get Mylyn 3 via its update site or
the Ganymede update site. If you're using Eclipse 3.3, you can get Mylyn
2.3 from the Europa update site or Mylyn's site.

http://www.eclipse.org/mylyn/ for more info.

Thanks for your reply. I was looking to hide the jars in the "Project
Explorer" and not from the "Package Explorer". (The Project Explorer is
the default view for the Java EE perspective.)

I see that the jars aren't visible in the project root of the Project
Explorer when starting a dynamic web project. The project of the picture
was generated by JBoss Seam-gen, so that might be the problem of all the
jars being visible in the Project Explorer.

Unchecking "Java Elements" also removes the packages. Is there a way to only remove the *.jar files and still keep the packages. Seems to work like a breeze in the package explorer.
