I figured someone would ask that, it is a fair question. In this specific
example, it is an IBM tool that host "Green Screens" and generates a JSP
that communicates with the legacy program. They call it "WebFacing". It
manifests itself as a fairly typical web application within the IDE. It
would be difficult, if not impossible to configure Eclipse to ignore the
generated files without impacting any other normal web applications in the

Also, because they are JSP and in theory could be edited I think people
just feel better storing the files in a repository, not to mention that is
much easier to setup a new workspace for another developer as the
conversion process is quite time intensive. Finally, with the files in a
repository it makes it easier to use scripts for deploying files from the

In the mainframe/AS/400 tools built on Eclipse there are a lot of these
scenarios where files are generated from things on the host. I think even
the EMF generator in Eclipse might have this issue.
