Re: [m2e-users] resource folders

Hi Fred,


Thanks for the bug link.


Interestingly when I removed the excluded=** and add an include **/somefile the included file doesnât get created for me â but then it works even without any matching files in the include! (Indigo Service Release 1, m2e 1.0.100, Windows)

That's interesting. Heret's what I get when I remove exclude=** and add include **/__m2e__ to the src/test/resources classpath entry, compared to the classic settings for src/main/resources :

The include__m2e__ file in my example is properly created under target/test-classes/foo/bar/, so I don't see why you'd need to actually create the dummy files. 

I can't think of any disadvantages of this solution over the exclude=all approach. But Igor's the specialist in this area, not me.

Hi all,


To set some background resources for our test classes in maven are in a folder that matches the name of the unit test.


e.g  for a class com.myco.myprod.sytem.foo.bar.WhizzTest  the resources would be in src/test/resources/com/myco/myprod/system/foo/bar/WhizzTest/


So far so good.


But using m2e when the resources folder is added due to the inclusion/exclusion filter you donât get the nice âpackageâ list under the resources â instead you get a tree structure.

Due to the tree structure (if you use a mouse) you need to drill down many layers to see what resources are in that folder â or to get to a specific resource.


I am well aware of the reason to have the filter (as without it you will end up with un maven-filtered resources in the output folder) â but I have a cunning plan and was wondering if there was any drawbacks â and if it could be implemented in a pseudo lifecycle binding or if this is something that could only be done in the core (if so if it was made optional would it be something that would be accepted into m2e)?


The cunning plan is to change the includes and excludes


                Included: (All)

                Excluded: **


                Included: **/.dummyFile

                Excluded: (None)


and then for each directory in the resources folder create the .dummyFile.


optionally this file can then be manually excluded from source control.
