Setting CVS repository defaults
When you use a CVS repository during team development, you might
want to use the following setup to ensure that the CVS versioning support
ignores the project's build output folder:
Create a file called .cvsignore in your project's WebContent/WEB-INF folder.
In this file, add a line with the name of the build output folder
(for example, classes).
Currently, you have
the option of creating this file automatically (as a feature) when using the
New Dynamic Web Project wizard.
When you synchronize with a CVS team
stream, the output folder will be ignored.
In addition, you should turn off the
, switch to the
page, and ensure that the
Prune empty directories
box is not checked.
If this option is enabled and your Web project's
source directory is empty, it will be deleted when the project is added to
your workspace from a CVS repository, causing a Java™ build error.
