Currently tooling API only provides very little information about a project's source folder (essential just a location).
It should also return additional information such as 'exclusion' (and inclusion?) patterns.

This issue was raised because of

Proper resolution of the STS issue depends on this information being provided by the tooling API.

Also it may be good to lump together other classpath attributes that are typically specified on source folders... namely:

  • inclusions (like exclusions)
  • output folder specific to that particular source folder
  • other 'custom' classpath attributes

I.e check out the documentation on the JavaCore.newSourceEntry method:

I guess the most pressing is the exclusions item. I don't yet want to raise separate issues for the other ones, but some of them may be logical/easy to implement at the same time. So I thought I'd at least mention them.
