Move EE build artifacts somewhere else

I finally gave in and now usually have my ipr, iml and iws files in the context
root.
Before that I frequently created an idea folder in the context root where these
files were stored.

Now that I am developing a EE application Idea creates lots of temporary build
files (jars) in the context root.
This is annoying, they always show up as new in svn compares.

I have my classes compiled to <context-root>/build/classes.
The intermediate build directory is exactly where I want these build artifacts
to be.
Is there a way to configure that directory.

If not: Is there a simple way to move the iml and ipr files to a new "idea"
subdirectory? (I take it idea then will generate the build artifacts there, right?)

Hello Stephen,

Which action did you perform before creating these temporary jars by Idea?
Building a WAR? Building to an exploded directory?

Perhaps it is already known issue (see http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-5204).
