[GRADLE-2768] Eclipse tooling api client would like to know 'derived' directories Created: 07/May/13  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

This relates to [1]https://issuetracker.springsource.com...

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.

Hey Kris,

At the moment, the location of build dir is not available via the tooling api.

It's hard to say when we will look into providing you the api that solves the use case. I'll export a jira ticket.

Hope that helps!
