Ok thanks for the clarification...

Just to give a short explanation, why I am trying this, it is not a
nagging for a not that important missing feature, there is something
else behind it.

I am currently
writing the docs in the MyFaces wiki on how to compile and debug the
jakarta MyFaces via
various Eclipse plugins, and since MyFaces sort of has a project
structure highly targeted towards Intellij and Eclipse sort of needs
self contained projects, I am trying various configurations with various
web plugins, to ease the editing and debugging under Eclipse.

For MyEclipse it was rather easy because you can add all the webcentric
stuff afterwards, but for Exadel it is close to impossible, because you
basically need a web application up front before checkout, so the
combination of those two plugins, subclipse and Exadel is sort of rough,
due to the rigidity of Exadel in adding web context stuff afterwards and
the missing checkout into in Subclipse.
But that is mainly the fault of Exadel of being to rigid, there are a
number of other cases where Exadels approach is more than problematic.

Thanks for the fast answer.... I will try to figure out a workaround to
the problem (probably by importing an empty exadel structure into the
checked out svn project).

Btw.. I love it that finally javasvn is added to the core codebase,
thanks a lot, it makes things much much easier in the long run.
