I am using Eclipse with the MyEclipse plugin to do J2EE development and then deploying an expanded application to tomcat 5. We are using SVN as our source version control tool. Everything works fine, but all of the .svn files and folders are deployed along with the application. Additions to the project just take longer and longer to deploy and test because of these files. Does anyone know how to filter the .svn files during the deployment of the web application.
The files aren't that large. It is more of a personal pet peave that keeps bugging me everytime I deploy in eclipse and see .svn fly past in the list of files being deployed. I have no problem with the jar files and .svn files. One of those issues that has no effect on development or the time required but has had the most unneeded hours wasted on it. I will probably take your advice and look into an ant script.
