Hi I am using an external CVS client for our projects. When I import the project in eclipse I naturally see the CVS folders too. After setting an exclude filter '**/CVS*' the cvs folders/files are removed from the view. However whenever I do a build the cvs folders are included in the output files. How can I remove this? I dont have this problem at all with JBuilder which automatically ignores the CVS files both in the view as well as the output.
I cannot use CVS from eclipse as the repository is on a remote location and takes quite some time.
In the projects properties, Java Build Path - Source, edit the "excluded" attribute of the source path.
Hope this helps...

Now, in case of the project created by checking out from CVS.... I want to include some external jars in my Java Build Path as I am otherwise getting compilation error. Hence, I was looking for Java Build Path -- > Libraries TAB and ADD External JAR button.
Eclipse has several ways to checkout a project from the CVS repository. When you right-click on the CVS module, you should choose "Check out as ..." (not "Check out as project"!). "Check out as..." opens a dialog that lets you choose the type of Eclipse project. You should choose the "Java" project type to get the features you are looking for.
"Amy C", We're pleased to have you here with us in the IDEs forum, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
