      Description

      I am evaluating maven + eclipse combo. In a trivial POM filtered resources exist only in target/classes. If one executes Project -> Clean under eclipse this information is lost. If filtered resources would appear as source folder they would survive cleaning and not got overriden by unfiltered ones.

      I have been trying to implement a scenario which would allow filtered resources to appear as "static" source folder under eclipse.
      The POM explains it best:

      <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">

              <executions>
                <execution>

                  </goals>
                  <configuration>
                    <outputDirectory>target/generated-resources</outputDirectory>
                    <resources>
                      <resource>
                        <directory>src/main/resource-templates</directory>
                        <filtering>true</filtering>
                      </resource>
                    </resources>
                  </configuration>
                </execution>
              </executions>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
          <filters>
            <filter>${ffile}</filter>
          </filters>
          <resources>
            <resource>
              <directory>src/main/resources</directory>
            </resource>
            <resource>
              <directory>target/generated-resources</directory>
            </resource>
          </resources>
        </build>
        <dependencies>
          <dependency>
            <groupId>junit</groupId>
            <artifactId>junit</artifactId>
            <version>3.8.1</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
          </dependency>
        </dependencies>
        <properties>
          <ffile>filter.properties</ffile>
        </properties>
      </project>
      

      thing is this part:

      <resources>
        <resource>
          <directory>src/main/properties</directory>
          <filtering>true</filtering>
        </resource>
      </resources>
      

      is completely ignored. Instead for both maven-resource-plugin executions (the one in generate-resources phase and the default one) this config is used:

      <resources>
        <resource>
          <directory>src/main/resources</directory>
        </resource>
        <resource>
          <directory>target/generated-resources</directory>
        </resource>
      </resources>
      

      which of course breaks the whole idea.

      Is this a bug or a design decision. In latter case is there any equivalent approach I might take?
