All of the Eclipse plugin generated classpath variables make Eclipse generate an inappropriate error message for every one:
Classpath entry ... will not be exported or published

Gradle Eclipse plugin should be able to eliminate such errors somehow such as making this entry as described below:

By adding an attribute as described here the inappropriate error can be eliminated
<classpathentry kind="var" path="M2_REPO/javax/ejb/ejb-api/3.0/ejb-api-3.0.jar">
<attribute name="org.eclipse.jst.component.nondependency" value=""/>

As mentioned in GRADLE-1134, this can be walked around with customized script. Though after milestone-4, you can add "org.eclipse.jst.component.dependency" to those with exported="true", and "org.eclipse.jst.component.nondependency" to those not exported.

eclipse {
  project {
    name = 'helloworld'

  classpath {
    plusConfigurations += configurations.providedCompile

    noExportConfigurations += configurations.providedCompile

    file {
      withXml {
        xml -> xml.asNode().classpathentry.findAll{
          it.@kind == 'lib'
              name: it.@exported ? 'org.eclipse.jst.component.dependency' : 'org.eclipse.jst.component.nondependency',
              value: it.@exported ? '/WEB-INF/lib' : ''

This is a duplicate of: GRADLE-1134

Let's move the discussion there.
