Is there any way for the "Open Resource" dialog to ONLY find the ".js" files, and not ".jsp" or ".jspx" or ".js?*" in general?

There was a question on StackOverflow about this a while ago, which was allegedly answered, but the solution doesn't work, at least not on Eclipse Indigo.

Try "*js " or "*js<". (exclude "." and append " " or "<")
(this doesn't suppress .ajs or such though...)

Those both work.

Is this mechanism described in any user-level documentation? I never would have guessed this. You'd think some hint to this would go along with the current "(? = any character, * = any string)" hint in the dialog.

I filed this bug to improve the on-screen hints for this. It also turns out that the fact that it does NOT work for "*.js<" is apparently a bug.
