Eclipse plugin - classpath and org.eclipse.wst.common.component

We are just starting to use gradle for our builds and we work with eclipse and WebSphere.

I thought running gradlew eclipse would not put providedCompile dependencies in the .classpath file of our war project or ejb projects.

We prefer putting our jar files in the ear lib. Eclipse knows to use these jars for compile and runtime for all projects that are part of the ear. 

Is there an easy way to prevent the generation of entries in the .classpath? Is there documentation about how the eclipse plugin uses the dependency configurations?
