How to define a "garage"-folder? [message #50773] Wed, 18 March 2009 15:22 Go to next message

I frequently have projects that contain a few files, that I want keep together with the project but which should - strictly speaking - not be considered part of the project.

In such files I keep e.g. documentation files or code snippets or alternative versions of some files, that may or may not be useful later in the project. I usually create a subfolder called "garage" where I "park" such files.

Now, this is usually not an issue, except occasionally when some builders or other tools try to be too thorough and inspect or even try to compile also files that are not within source-folders. This then causes warnings or even errors, which can then block other build-steps or commands which execute only on error-free projects (like e.g. the compilation/build of dependent projects).

Is there a way to define or mark folders that are NOT to be touched by builders (and in that sense are not part of the project) but are still physically below a project's root directory?

I'd say that is up to each builder. For example, the JDT builder only
looks in directories that are listed as source locations in the
project's build path.
Do you know what builder(s) was/were exhibiting the strange behavior? If
so, you should be able to either configure them to ignore your "garage"
or enter a bug about it.

One example is e.g. the "JSP Compilation builder". And it offers no editable settings.
I'll submit a Bugzilla...
