RE: [wtp-dev] utility facet

Out of curiosity, why is there a difference between Package Explorer and Project Explorer on this? Is it that the JDT extensions to Project Explorer don’t optimize away empty containers like the Package Explorer does? If so, has there been a bug entered for this? I know that the guys that maintains these extensions want to achieve feature parity with Package Explorer so I imagine they would want to know about this…

Yes, in the Java EE perspective, it is expected behavior for any Java EE module to display an EAR Libraries container. (Note that it does not show up in the Java perspective.) This has been true since WTP 2.0 was shipped in June, 2007, so it is not recent. The functionality added back then was quite a concept- before that, every jar had to be placed on all of the various classpaths of all of the modules within an EAR, and synchronization was a nightmare... now it is simply the following entry in the .classpath file:

<classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.internal.module.container"/>

Yes, just tried it again with the candidate M6 build S-3.1M6-20090318020101.
