Re: [wtp-dev] WTP is removing temporary folders on every publish

Hi Luis,

The short answer is 'no'. There are a couple of underlying options in WTP for publishing, but the safest and most common is simply syncing the structure of your project with the published contents. This avoids any chance of the server getting out of sync through resources being modified in the wrong place, deleted files being handled incorrectly, etc. Does Lucene not have any way to handle this? I would have expected indexes to be generated in a temp/metadata folder or have the option of putting them elsewhere on disk.

I'm using Eclipse Galileo, and have a web project under a Tomcat 6 server using Lucene for full-text indexing.
Lucene creates the indexes in a folder under the project deploy path.
However, every time I save a file in eclipse, the server publish is removing the index folder, which is a pain, as it renders the application unusable, and I have to stop, start so indexes are recreated (which also takes a long time, depending on data).
Is there a way to make WTP not removing folders which are not in the workspace?
