Description puce 2013-10-25 10:57:02 UTC
Show the target dir (or more specifically ${}) in the Projects view.

Often it is required to check the generated output.

This would avoid the need to switch between Projects view and File view.

Note: This is also the behavior of Eclipse.
Comment 1 Milos Kleint 2013-10-25 11:12:15 UTC
sorry, if there's ever need to see what's in target/ folder, then there's the Files view for it. The projects view is to contain just important information used for development daily.
Comment 2 puce 2013-10-25 11:18:49 UTC
This is a pity, as I found this quite inconvenient in the past resp. quite useful in Eclipse.

Especially since the selections in Projects view and Files view are not 100% synchronized.
Comment 3 Milos Kleint 2013-10-25 11:29:29 UTC
how often do you check the output directory?
Comment 4 puce 2013-10-25 12:00:12 UTC
If I want to check/ work on e.g.

 -  the Javadoc
 -  Maven filtered resources
 -  Maven Assembly outputs
 -  Generated Maven sites
 -  Generated Maven artifacts
 -  OSGi POM-first generated Manifest files
 -  etc.

then for each of those tasks there might be many iterations of "tweak, re-build, check".
Comment 5 puce 2013-10-25 12:02:10 UTC
Maybe there could be an option (global, project group, project) to show or hide ${} in the Projects view?
