Auto-Package of web resources

Hi,

bottom line:
I was wondering why I can't find the option to auto-package web resources (webapp/..) on change.

details:
I only found outdated discussions about this issue. The thing that comes closest to this issue might be "Update Resources" (and "Update Resources on frame deactivation"). But this is not very efficient (at least in my case), because it re-compiles (!) all (!!) my modules (~8) again. Making things worse, I'm using Scala, which takes a while. Fixing this can easily reduce the time I wait for a html/css change from ~45 seconds to ~1 second.

Basically either this option is really missing (IDE issue) or the Scala plugin should not be called (SCALA issue) on resource updates.

Cheers,
stephanos

by the way:

PS: Clicking/pressing 'Package File' for each file is indeed a  workaround - but since this is "The Most Intelligent Java IDE", I expect  better :-)
PPS: I'm using #95.24 with Scala Plugin 0.3.1156

You're right, Scala compiler should not be called on 'Update resources' action. Could you please create an issue for this problem
(http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA)?

I think in a previous version (8.x ?) there was a plugin for that - but I can't find it anymore.
