Re: [pdt-dev] Symlinks

This isn't really a PDT issue -- the same thing happens if you have any nested projects checked out (java, ant, php, whatever).

When I have this situation, eg: /cvsroot/uberproject/subproject checked out as 2 projects in my workspace as uberproject and subproject, the workaround to avoid building both and having to synch both with CVS is to close one project and work on the other.

Not entirely ideal, but it helps.

When you open this bug, open it against the platform, and please copy the bug number here.

Thanks!

Yes that is exactly it, it ends up building everything within the symbolic
link for that location.  The main problem is that it ends up using a lot of
memory and the second that it takes long to do the build.

EXAMPLE:

dir/foo/code/here

dir/symlink->/dir/foo/code/here

The builder will build a set of files for, dir/foo/code/here and a set of
files for dir/symlink->/dir/foo/code/here

I would be interested in such an option as well.
The problem in my case is that the project for the starting page contains
symbolic links to various other projects which in Eclipse are checked out
themselves. When symbolic links are followed all those other projects are
basically build twice, once when the symlink is following and once for their
own seperate project.

No, there's no such an option yet...
What's the problem with following symbolic links?

Hi,

The codebase I'm currently using relies heavy on symbolic links. I
would
like to know if there is a way that I can tell PHP Project Builder not
to
follow symlinks?
