Eclipse Web Tools Platform 3.1 M5 - New and Noteworthy
The default layout of the Java EE perspective has been altered:
Portions of the Web Tools Platform make use of the EMF Core/JET utility for generating the source code of Java EE artifacts, such as Servlets, EJBs, etc. Until now this has involved the dynamic generation of JET templates with the generated classes being placed in a hidden project under the workspace, .JETEmitter.
The existence of the .JETEmitter project has caused issues for users, while in the same time providing no tangible benefit. For these reasons, WTP has now switched to using JET templates that are statically compiled within its plug-ins, avoiding the need for a .JETEmitter project.
Should the project still be needed, the old behavior can be restored from the new Java EE preference page.
