java-output-path in org.eclipse.wst.common.component file [message #550261] Thu, 29 July 2010 16:08

Hi there!
I have a question about the property java-output-path that I find in the
file org.eclipse.wst.common.component file under .settings folder of a
Dynamic Web Project.
On some old projects (imported from a Galileo workspace) I have that
property defined as:

<property name="java-output-path"/>

so, with no associated value.

On a brand new project, created with Helios, I have that property
defined as:

<property name="java-output-path" value="/MyProjectName/build/classes"/>

In this example the dynamic web project is called MyProjectName and it
is located in the default /MyProjectName folder within the workspace.
However, after changing the project name to MyNewProjectName (or after
creating a copy 'n' paste of MyProjectName into MyNewProjectName), I see
that the java-output-path value is not updated with the new project
folder location.

However, if I do a right-click | Properties | Java Build Path on
MyNewProjectName project, I see that the "Default output folder" is set
correctly to MyNewProjectName/build/classes: that is, the
java-output-path wrong value of MyProjectName/build/classes is not

Is there any bug here? What is the expected behaviour?

Thanks in advance,
