IntellJ hides the build directory

Is there anyway I can get IntelliJ to show me the contents of the build directory? Some of my deployment descriptors are generated (by XDoclet) straight into the build directory, I want to see the generated descriptors (currently I have to go through the filesystem to view them). If I could view them from within IntelliJ that would be great.

I have looked at the options but can't find anything about not hiding the build directory.

(if I remember correctly earlier versions of IntelliJ, like 4.x, didn't hide the build directory...it seemed to start doing so in 5.x)

You probably have the build directory set as excluded. This is normally a good thing, but not when you have generated sources that you need. Perhaps another src root would better serve you.

I think if you go into project settings and you select your build directory and mark it as a source ti will show up in your project view tree. Not sure if this is what you mean. ...
