This relates to https://issuetracker.springsource.com/browse/STS-3338
Essentially, many Eclipse tools treat resources that are marked as ‘derived’ specially. Though in many cases this doesn’t matter… in some cases it is crucial for logical and efficient processing.
I have hard-coded the Gradle STS tooling now to mark any folder called ‘build’ nested under a project folder as ‘derived’.
That does work… but I suspect this is only convention and it is possible for builds to customize where this folder is.
So for a truly correct implementation I would need to ask the tooling API where this folder is for a given project.
Is this currently supported? How?
If no, could this be added in the future.
