Eclipse Problem Overview
When I do a file search on eclipse it includes the
.svn directories by default. I tried excluding them from the build path but they still appear on file search results.
Solution 1 - Eclipse
Spaceman is right. With Helios, choose
Project -> Properties -> Resource -> Resource Filters and then add an
exclude filter for type "Folder" with name
Solution 2 - Eclipse
If you install the subclipse plugin then it automatically excludes the
.svn directories (plus provides some other cool stuff in the IDE).
If it does not work, simply restart Eclipse (sometimes it's needed on a fresh checkout)
Solution 3 - Eclipse
Following up on Mark Ingram's excellent answer, simply installing the plugin won't get you there -- You'll still need to
Share your project in order for the automatic Search filtering to take hold. After you set up the SVN repository location from within the Subeclipse view you may Share your project by doing the following:
- From within Package Explorer, right-click the project name
- Select the
Teamcontext menu option and then
- Step trough the wizard to tie your project to its location in the svn repository
- Once you complete that and the workspace rebuilds you are all set to enjoy filtered search.
Solution 4 - Eclipse
.svn folders by making them derived stops then appearing in the search results, see here.
You have to do it manually for each folder, if you have a lot of
.svn folders then it's not ideal.
Solution 5 - Eclipse
If you are gonig down the plugin route, I tend to prefer subversive over subclipse.
Solution 6 - Eclipse
Ah - OK. I don't use SubVersion per se, but would this be of any use? It claims it can do what you want...
Solution 7 - Eclipse
Eclipse import would also contain file of type .java.svn-base, so its better to give as in below image
Solution 8 - Eclipse
You can off course also select ALL the file name patterns to include in the file search dialog
Solution 9 - Eclipse
Click on the drop-down triangle in the top-right corner of the Navigator and choose "Filters..".
By default Eclipse only offers you ".class" and ".".
If you choose ".*" you'll hide .svn files. Obviously all other .something files will also be hidden.
