[Subclipse-users] Eclipse WITHOUT Subclipse made me delete my code!

Has the following been documented somewhere prominently? I cannot be the
first to have done this and the search terms are too large to find it in
any FAQs/mailing lists/bug trackers.

I have a program stored in SVN. I use an Eclipse Java project to do all
development but I do NOT have Subclipse (bear with me here guys).

When Eclipse builds from /src to /bin, it copies the .svn directories as
it doesn't know any better. This leads to some very confusing /bin folder
entries that, when "svn deleted", actually remove the contents of /src in
the repository. You can imagine my panic the next day :)

The solution :
a) Use Subclipse or
b) Add ".svn" to Window->Preferences->Java->Compiler->Building->Filtered
resources
