Hi Bill ,
Is it possible that i can declare multiple source folders and can also specify the output directory ( where class files will be
generated) individually.
I am trying to emulate BEA split directory structure but still got stuck .
As eclipse will only take one folder as the output folder, and its a real pain chainging the source folder and output folder.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Amit,

I usually rely on Ant to partition the 'products' and Eclipse to keep me from writing a bunch of code that won't work. So for example my typical project would have many source folders. I'd let Eclipse keep the classes where ever it wan't to (I totally ignore that aspect of Eclipse and think of it as basically an internal private piece of Eclipse that I don't think about or try to use or understand). Then in my ant build file I use war & jar to make my war, ear and ejb jar files and then deploy the .ear files out to weblogic, jboss, websphere etc.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
Thanks for answering my question, I usually do that, but even if I have to change a line in jsp unless I am using an exploded archive , i have to completely rebuild the ear file which almost takes 5 min of my time, so if i am using an exploded archive structure the generation of class files does makes an important aspect of it. But thanks for your reply, as I am now sure that eclipse does not support that in current release .
